He uses an OM it seems like ,most of the time.
but it looks like the neck is as narrow a dread.
Most Om s have a wider neck, just asking.

Tommy plays all Maton guitars (OM's and dreads), and the model he uses most often is an OM with about a 1 3/4" neck (44.1 mm).  That OM does indeed look like a small guitar when he's all over it on stage!

  Had the pleasure of meeting Tommy and talking with him at one of his guitar workshops when he was in Maryland...I was amazed how big his hands are!...he is kind of a big, athletic man that you wouldn't see unless you saw him in person...his hand I believe is big enough to put his pinky finger on the waist of a guitar and his thumb can reach the other side of the waist...thas how he can play all the chords he can...he has great reach...

Heard Tommy on the Bob and Tom show this week.  He's as good as ever - makes you sit back and wonder what you've been doing all these years.....   Ugh!

  Some people are just born to do it, and Tommy is one of them...I've been playing all kinds of music for 45 years and I'm a fairly fair guitar player, but this man just amazes me...

Amazing is correct!  I have often wondered what is going through his mind while he is performing.....  Blows your mind!
