For the OM player who wants a serious boost in presence and dynamic range - and in a package that looks as good as it sounds - this cocobolo and European spruce OM Grand from Santa Cruz is the ticket. The unusual, "almost pixelated" cocobolo we fell in love with on a standard OM that recently passed through makes another appearance here, this time paired with beautifully bearclawed European spruce. With a lower bout measuring 16", the OM Grand design is akin to a Martin 0000. As SCGC says, "The strength of the OM Grand isn’t limited to sheer volume. In the sometimes restrained presence of solo fingerstyle playing, the inherent power of this guitar will generate a forceful bloom, requiring less effort with no loss of nuance." And in this wood pairing, it's got a balanced voice and just the right amount of sustain and lushness to handle a wide range of playing styles. As usual, Santa Cruz have kept the appointments restrained and elegant, opting for classic herringbone and ivoroid binding to accent these stunning tonewoods.
