Hold – Santa Cruz OM Custom Tunnel 13/Brazilian

Serial Number: 5953

Here at Eddie’s sometimes we very feel very privileged to curate and serve up some of the most amazing instruments on earth. This Santa Cruz OM Custom Tunnel 13 and Brazilian is most certainly one of them.

Having had a few of these grace our doors, we know what a special work of art these are even before they arrive. This one is no exception. Simply stunning, rare and powerful. This is a player’s dream, a collector’s target, and a tone hounds envy.

And just look at the stunning ‘dark shoulders’ on this gem!

Let it be known that THIS guitar has the very last Tunnel 13 Redwood top in Santa Cruz’s wood stash. Unless another source for this amazing wood is found, this will be the last guitar made with Tunnel 13 Redwood by Santa Cruz Guitar Company. 

These heirlooms don’t last long. Hit us up and let’s pair you with this incredible specimen.

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.
