Santa Cruz OM Grand "The Tree" & Bearclaw Moon Spruce Custom



Ever since we heard the spec OM Grand Santa Cruz made from "The Tree" at NAMM last year, we knew we had to have another. A year later -- here it is! As mentioned, this instrument features stunning quilted mahogany back and sides from a legendary tree now just known as ... The Tree. Santa Cruz paired this wood with one of the most heavily (and gorgeously) bearclawed European Spruce tops we've ever seen; and the sound is nothing short of sublime. It's got the power, crispness and crackle you'd expect from a great D-18, but the low end is intense, rich and dense in harmonic overtones. A bona fide best-of-both-worlds voice, and top-of-the-heap craftsmanship from the luthiers at Santa Cruz. With Ameritage case.
