    Beautiful Santa Cruz OM-42 Custom Quilted Bubinga offering sturdy and robust tone, crystalline mids and highs and plenty of headroom. Richard Hoover and this team know how to select wood and build powerful and gorgeous guitars.

    This Santa Cruz OM-42 Custom is delightfully versatile and resonates even with the lightest touch and produces magic notes! Deeply appreciated for fingerstyle and contemporary flat picking work, the OM is their number one request. By adhering to the principles of physics and the tried and true practices of lutherie, SCGC guarantees the most sophisticated instrument of its kind. Richard and his skilled team assure maximum sustain and complexity of overtones and maintain consistency of balance and tone. To accommodate the subjective nature and personal requirements of EQ, tone and presence, SCGC offer their considerable talents to deliver exactly what you need in a custom instrument.

    This Santa Cruz OM-42 Custom is build with a delightful set of master grade Quilted Bubinga, a tight grained Italian Alpine Spruce top and constructed with Hot Hide Glue for maximum power and resonance. African Bubinga (aka African Rosewood) is an awesome tonewood for backs and sides, thanks to its strong tone. It drives volume and clarity, especially in combination with Alpine Spruce. The Honduran Mahogany neck has a slight V shape, plays like butter and offers extra string spacing. Construction is predictably first-class, with quality materials everywhere. Top-notch tonal qualities put this babe where she belongs: the absolute top of the line! To top that off, we added the classic Abalone Torch to the headstock and the classic and royal style-42 Abalone inlay around the top. Just gorgeous!
