Santa Cruz OM/PW Sitka Spruce & Mahogany

This OM/PW is a beautiful example of Santa Cruz's legendary Pre-War bracing, making this guitar sound like a time machine while still retaining the Santa Cruz balance and clarity. This Santa Cruz OM/PW features a sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides.  Mahogany guitars are known for being extremely well suited to the recording studio, requiring little EQ to achieve the desired tone. It is a highly reflective tonewood and produces a mid-range that rosewood typically doesn't offer. The tone of mahogany guitars is very defined, with lots of clarity and a dry, vintage tone.

Between the simple charm and old world tone, this guitar is sure to win over any player.  The Sitka spruce top drives for the light and heavy handed, being a good multi-style instrument. Fingerstyle players will enjoy the definition of chordal passages, while flat-pickers will adore the bass response and quick note attack. Elegant and refined, with a black body binding makes this guitar pop with that classic look.

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Very Good condition with only a few light scratches and dings. There area  few marks on the bottom side of the lower bout, and a couple dings on the top behind the bridge. The Bridge has also been professionally reglued.
