Details

This OM from our friends at Santa Cruz is as gorgeous to look at as it is to play and hear. An exquisite top of moon spruce, with its Sitka-like holographic figuring, is matched with an unusual set of cocobolo that was initially described as "almost pixelated" when we had our first look. Tonally, it has all the balance and clarity we expect from a SCGC OM. Beyond that, though, it really has a voice all its own. The initial attack has a warm, midrange focus reminiscent of mahogany, but quickly that gives way to a clear sustain and moderate overtone bloom. The player gets the resonance and nuance we all love from cocobolo, without ever straying into muddy territory. And did we mention balance? No frequency range overtakes the other, meaning this OM has true genre-crossing versatility and utility for a wide range of playing styles and settings. Never ones to overdo the appointments when the woods are plenty capable of showing themselves off, SCGC have adorned this OM with a simple B/W purfling, ivoroid binding, and wood rosette.
