Honoring the renowned pre-WWII guitars that set the standard for craftsmanship and tone, this Santa Cruz OM Pre-War is crafted with a cedar top and figured mahogany back and sides, as well as an advanced scalloped X-bracing. This design has proven itself time and time again, and ensures a large bass response and overall volume, in addition to a throaty presence that the pre-war examples are known for. Its appointments are understated, sporting a violin purfle rosette, single violin purfling, and a simple black line backstrip.
These minimalistic yet sleek appointments allow the master-grade materials, tone, and craftsmanship to speak for themselves. Versatility and ergonomic design make the Santa Cruz OM Pre-War ideal for fingerstyle and flatpicking aficionados who seek the the high-quality design of a vintage-inspired, boutique instrument without the the additional costs of rare woods and ornamentation. The prior owner took fantastic care of it, bringing it to us in excellent condition.
