Santa Cruz OM Custom – Cocobolo/Sinker Redwood

Serial Number: 5903

This Santa Cruz OM Custom in Cocobolo and Sinker Redwood…

If you watched Matt’s latest live feed, you saw and heard this beautiful gem. Powerful, subtle and everything in between. It is a Santa Cruz after all, an instant heirloom.

In the 1920′s, the Orchestra Model was originally intended to be a large guitar capable of being heard over other orchestral instruments, hence the OM name. Although it fit the bill, its relatively large body was soon eclipsed by the mighty dreadnought. Fortunately, the OM had secured its place in history as a powerful and versatile voice for public performance. Santa Cruz was among the first modern builders to reintroduce this now smaller bodied favorite at the beginning of the Eighties. Our practice of combining the most desirable attributes of old and new, rather than copying, made for a very successful introduction of the Santa Cruz Guitar Company to a whole new audience. With some irony, this acclaim encouraged the venerable originator of the OM to reintroduce the model to their line. Eric Clapton’s historic performance on the debut of MTV Unplugged set us on a course for another 25 years of success with this now perennial favorite.

Don’t wait on this special piece – someone else will get her before you do!
