Santa Cruz OM Deep Body – Moon Spruce & Fiddleback Mahogany
Moon Spruce and Fiddleback Mahogany… If the wood species alone don’t make you want it, which they should – you are in for a treat with the wonderful specs of this instant heirloom. Gorgeous, toneful, cannon – and subtle where/when you want it. Perfection from Santa Cruz.
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.
