2004 Santa Cruz OM German Spruce and Indian Rosewood

In the 1920's, the Orchestra Model was originally intended to be a large guitar capable of being heard over other orchestral instruments, hence the OM name. Although it fit the bill, its relatively large body was soon eclipsed by the mighty dreadnought. Fortunately, the Santa Cruz OM had secured its place in history as a powerful and versatile voice for public performance. Santa Cruz was among the first modern builders to reintroduce this now smaller bodied favorite at the beginning of the Eighties. Their practice of combining the most desirable attributes of old and new, rather than copying, made for a very successful introduction of the Santa Cruz Guitar Company to a whole new audience. With some irony, this acclaim encouraged the venerable originator of the OM to reintroduce the model to their line. Eric Clapton's historic performance on the debut of MTV Unplugged set us on a course for another 25 years of success with this now perennial favorite.

The Santa Cruz OM is delightfully versatile. Our OM players range from blazing flat picker James Nash to John Mayer and Elvis Costello. The Santa Cruz Guitar Company OM provides clean, loud mid-range and trebles that are complimented by a slightly predominate bass. Deeply appreciated for fingerstyle and contemporary flat picking work, the OM is the number one request from Santa Cruz.

This custom 2004 Santa Cruz OM features a German Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood back and sides. The German Spruce is instantly responsive with lots of overtones. German is very versatile for many players, offering more stiffness, and therefore more power, than a Sitka Spruce top can provide.

This 2004 Santa Cruz OM is in excellent condition with just a few light scratches to the top and back as well as some light buckle rash on the back of the instrument. There is a small dent to the upper bout on the treble side of the instrument that can be seen in the photographs below. Original TKL Hardshell case included.
