Details

Honoring the renowned pre-WWII guitars that set the standard for craftsmanship and tone, this Santa Cruz OM Pre-War is a gorgeous boutique take on the OM-18, with an Adirondack spruce top, fiddleback mahogany back and sides, and 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 of this sunburst OM PW took fantastic care of it, bringing it to us in excellent condition, with an added strap pin.
