Santa Cruz OM Pre-War (OM-PW) Natural, 2010


Instrument Categories: , ,

Here we have a very nicely preserved Santa Cruz OM Pre-War model in its stock configuration, pairing a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. This lovely piece is in great shape with only light wear to the finish and negligible fret wear.

The original hard shell case is included.

Here’s the builder on the Santa Cruz OM Pre-War model:

“The Santa Cruz OM Pre-War honors its pre-WWII predecessors with an advanced X and scalloped top bracing. This time-tested design ensures large bass response and overall volume. Acoustic Guitar Magazine has placed it as one of the most important instruments of the last 20 years. The OM/PW is presented with understated appointments to emphasize master grade materials, tone and workmanship. It is perfect for the aficionado that loves the advantages of a professional boutique instrument without the cost of rare wood and ornamentation. The OM’s versatility and ergonomics lend great appeal for traditional picking styles and impressive rhythm work. Expect the predominant bass and throaty presence of the surviving pre-war antiques.”<
