Details

This show-stopping OM Custom from Santa Cruz Guitars is an absolute masterclass in detailed craftsmanship, superb feel and distinctive, inspired tonality all culminating in what can only be described as a truly beautiful instrument.  

Earning every letter of the word Custom that befits it's title, this OM sports a breathtaking 3,000 year old Ancient Sitka Spruce top paired with a tightly figured Quilted Sapele back and sides, Ivoroid bound and detailed with charming Cowboy Rope Purfling around the top to set the whole affair off. 

However the guitar is more than just visually mesmerising. The sonic character it imparts is detailed, rich and sure to move both player and listener. Inherently balanced, this OM Custom has a strong and controlled bass response matched by well defined trebles and a distinctly vintage feel to the midrange. The overall blend brings together the best of classic and contemporary tones and works wonders for fingerstyle and flatpicked approaches alike. 

The playability is everything we so consistently adore from Richard Hoover and his team, with an exceedingly comfortable profile and crystal clear separation all the way through to to upper registers of the board making for an effortless and engaging playing experience.
