What makes this guitar special: The OM is Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s Orchestra Model, a well-rounded acoustic with a comfortable body shape and hand-selected tonewoods that give it a remarkably versatile sound. And with the OM’s player base including such revered guitarists as James Nash and Elvis Costello, it’s easy to see why it’s such an exceptional instrument. The OM’s body is made of Indian Rosewood, with a Sitka Spruce top. The combination of Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce is a staple of several acoustic guitars, but with Santa Cruz’s high-quality construction, scalloped bracing, and gorgeous figuring, you get a whole new level of tonal depth, in-hand feel, and visual appeal. Plus, its V shaped neck, 1 3/4” nut width, and ebony fingerboard, your fretting hand will never feel more comfortable. And whether you’re playing chords, leads, or fingerstyle, the OM’s tonal flexibility will deliver deeply layered, harmonically rich sound time and again.
