Santa Cruz OM: This exact guitar has been eye-balled and ear-balled by a few really fine players. One of my old acquaintances, who is a very advanced classical guitarist, composer, and arranger, visited with this Santa Cruz OM for about an hour in the shop. His latest project was recording a retrospective of all of the Beatle's tunes. By himself. Playing all the instruments. Back to the story, he was awed by the even response anywhere on the neck (and believe me-he went everywhere on the neck) and it's larger than it's size sound. He wanted this guitar. As is often the case, it was more dear than he could comfortably go. For the person who can see the value, this guitar will deliver every ounce of investment back to it's owner. Simply magnificent.
