From the Santa Cruz website:
"In the 1920ís, 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 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. Our 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."
This instrument is one of the finest we have had from our friends at Santa Cruz. Not only is it simply gorgeous to behold, but its lightweight body build combined with its particular wood combination produces a fresh crisp sound that is not only open and airy but rich and full bodied as well. Simply effortless to play, it slakes ones thirst for a musical voice that will sate ones musical appetites.
This guitar includes a deluxe Ameritage archtop hardshell case.
