Santa Cruz OM Grand "The Tree" Mahogany & Bearclaw European Spruce (2017)

$15,500.00

Description

This mind-blowing OM Grand from Santa Cruz was originally built for showcasing at the 2017 NAMM show; and it's come back to us for consignment since the owner felt he wasn't giving it the proper amount of attention. And its condition would bear that theory out -- this is as close to new condition as pre-owned guitars get. 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 its original Ameritage case.

On consignment.
