SANTA CRUZ OM GRAND
Richard Hoover, SCGC’s founding luthier, calls the classic OM design “the most sophisticated sounding steel string guitar that modern luthiery has achieved”. SCGC’s new OM Grand model is a bigger, lusher, louder sister to their extremely popular interpretation of the world renowned OM design. In comparison, the OM Grand embodies the same elegance, only in increased quantity of volume, projection and bass. More isn’t necessarily better, though in the context of a band’s competing acoustic instruments the ‘more’ of the OM Grand assures the guitars rightful dominance in the ensemble.
In preparing the templates for this new body size, Richard saw this enhanced sized OM as a fine addition to the stellar line-up of SCGC standard models, and the concept of the OM Grand was born.The strength of the OM Grand isn’t limited to sheer volume. In the sometimes restrained presence of solo fingerstyle playing, the inherent power of this guitar will generate a forceful bloom, requiring less effort with no loss of nuance.The best available tone woods are selected, voiced and tuned, as they are on all SCGC models. These include Indian Rosewood, responsibly harvested from the highest quality timbers, Sitka Spruce from British Colombia and premium Mahogany from sustainable resources.
This is how the legendary pre-war Martin 00-18's looked, felt, and most importantly, sounded. Meticulously based on a 1931 model in the famed Martin museum, this guitar is handmade in the custom shop the same as they were back then.
Specs include an Adirondack top & bracing, genuine Mahogany back & sides and Madagascan Rosewood binding.
Martin's vintage tone system (VTS) and hide glue construction throughout gives this model a stunning tone that belies it's small-body stature. An absolute masterpiece, this is the first and only 00-18 Authentic in Australia.

Wow has this been worth the wait. Lowden make acoustic guitars that sound like no other and we think they are the bees knees. This is from the famous original series and is the fantastic Medium sizes 'F' Flatpicking model. The smaller soundbox shape produces more projection and midrange than the 'O' making it perfect for flat pickers, but it has also found it's way into the hands of finger style players, blues guitarists, and others. This guitar has the classic combination of Cedar soundboard, and Walnut back and sides and a Factory fitted LR Baggs Anthem pickup system. A true delight for the eyes and ears. Comes in an English Lowden branded flight case.View full product details
