This exquisite instrument from Santa Cruz Guitars is their OM Custom model acoustic guitar in Flamed Koa and Italian Spruce.
As one would expect from Richard Hoover and his team, the nuance and detail in this custom model is absolutely extraordinary with a distinct blend of classic features and high end appointments in line with the finest in contemporary luthierie.
Sustainable and remarkable woods lie at the core of every Santa Cruz build, and in this particular instrument the natural beauty of its construction makes it a truly wonderful example of this ethos in action. The Flamed Koa of the back and sides is outrageously figured, with the striking, clean visuals of the Italian Spruce top providing a stark counterpoint and detailed purfling to meet the two.
Sonically, the guitar treads a line between something intrinsically timeless and versatile and the distinctive depth that sets these instruments apart. Being an OM, the balance of the guitar makes it applicable for a range of styles and tunings, with the Koa adding a sweetness and warmth to the midrange with a stunning response and touch sensitive dynamics.
The guitar plays beautifully with an exceptionally comfortable slim neck carve and low action right out of the case, with clear note separation and articulation across the strings.
