Santa Cruz OM-42 Adirondack & Brazilian Custom


This custom Santa Cruz Brazilian Rosewood OM has been well over a year in the making ~ and it's been worth every minute. The pictures will tell the story of this guitar's stunning looks and craftsmanship, so let's focus on what really matters: tone. This is simply an incredible-sounding instrument, one that's remarkably lightweight for a Brazilian OM. The voice has an incredible mix of pure, woody thunder and silky, crisp shimmer. There's enough depth to make you think there's a reverb tank built into it, and the responsiveness is on par with the best vintage guitars you'll encounter. If you've been waiting for the OM to displace a dozen guitars, this is the one -- whether you strum, flatpick, fingerpick, record exclusively or accompany a vocalist, there's nothing this guitar won't fit like a glove. Priced with Ameritage hard case!
