Details

This show-stopping OM Grand from Santa Cruz Guitars is an absolute masterclass in detailed craftsmanship, superb feel, and distinctive, inspired tonality. This OMG sports a breathtaking 3,000-year-old ancient Sitka spruce top, appropriately paired with old-growth mahogany back and sides, and ivoroid bound and decked out with abalone purfling and rosette.

More than just visually mesmerizing, though, the sonic character of this guitar is detailed, rich and sure to move both player and listener. Inherently balanced, this OM Grand 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.
