We ordered this Santa Cruz OM-45 a couple years back, aiming for the gold standard in one of their OMs. Style-45. Tier 1 Brazilian Rosewood. Adirondack Spruce. It's an absolute stunner in the looks department; and the sound does not disappoint either.
Rich, powerful, and downright domineering, this guitar may be the six-string equivalent of a bold California Cabernet. It has lushness and crackle to blow your eyelids back, but there are subtle overtones to be discovered all over the fretboard.
It's a guitar that will captivate you the first time you play it and continue to offer new sonic discoveries each time you pick it up. Priced with its original case. Current replacement cost would be $29,250.00; and this guitar remains in near-mint condition.
