Though this highly customized Santa Cruz OM-42 is sold, the inlay work turned out so well, we thought it was worthy of display on the site. Our client knew the Santa Cruz sound was what she wanted; and thankfully, there's no finer group of folks up to the challenge when we ask if we can inlay a fishing boat onto the fingerboard extension! Essentially a Sunburst OM-42 (without the pearl around the fingerboard tongue), the star here is the entirely hand-cut boat & gulls motif. Have a look at the photos -- and if you're thinking about a custom-built flattop, call us and let's talk about what we can dream up with the good people at Santa Cruz Guitars!
