Ultralight Santa Cruz OM with a unique flavor that somehow oozes a “vintage” vibe. She features a complex tone with a warm and powerful low end. Richard Hoover and this team outdid themselves on this beauty.
This Santa Cruz OM is delightfully versatile and a lightweight, with only 1.575 kg / 3.47 lbs. She resonates even with the lightest touch and produces magic notes! This Santa Cruz OM provides clean, loud mid-range and warm trebles that are complimented by a solid and sweet-sounding bass. 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, we offer our considerable talents to deliver exactly what you need in a custom instrument.
This Santa Cruz OM is built with the classic combination of master grade Adirondack Red Spruce and a beautiful set of straight-grained Genuine Mahogany for the back and sides. The top is structured with the vintage-style “advanced” X-bracing build from Adirondack and constructed with Hide Glue. The Mahogany neck has a slight V shape and terminates with a volute behind the headstock. It’s capped with an Ivoroid bound fingerboard that has small Abalone dot inlays and black side markers. The guitar is adorned with a herringbone purfling back strip. An Ivoroid rosette surrounds the slightly smaller-than-normal 3 3/4-inch soundhole. 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!
