Once again the good folks at Santa Cruz Guitar Company have completely outdone themselves! This OM Custom is loaded with some of the finest woods we’ve ever laid eyes on. The Fort Ross Chapel Redwood top is incredibly clean, responsive and full of highly dynamic tone. The back and sides are made of the highly coveted, highly quilted, The Tree Mahogany. Simply put, there is not another tonewood like it on our planet and it has been used in some of our all time favorite acoustic guitars we’ve had in our shop.

More info on the Santa Cruz OM and detailed specs…

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.

This beautiful, toneful, RARE specimen is looking for its forever home. And it will not last long. Get it while it’s here!
