Santa Cruz OM Ancient Sitka Tree of Life Custom



We're happy to host this highly customized OM from the artists at Santa Cruz Guitar Company! Before all the bling grabs your attention -- check out that top! We've been knocked out by the 3000-year-old Ancient Sitka tops we've had thus far, and jumped at the chance to secure this one. These tops have the incredible resonance and responsiveness you'd expect, and provide a warm, open fundamental voice for seemingly any tonewood they're paired with. Coupled with old-stock Indian Rosewood, we hear a very rich tone, with plenty of clarity and sparkle and not a hint of mud. Now ~ that bling! All the top & back purfling, as well as the stunning "Tree of Life" inlay motif, are blue paua, resulting in an even more arresting color palette than we're used to on a similarly appointed guitar. Have a listen to TME's own Lindsay Straw playing it in the video herein, and give us a call if you'd like an in-hand description. Priced with Ameritage hard case.
