OM SS

Santa Cruz OM Short Scale Adirondack / Mahogany Acoustic Guitar

1 only in stock

In the 1920′s, 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. Eric Clapton’s historic performance on the debut of MTV Unplugged set us on a course for another 25 years of success with this now perennial favourite.

This model has been custom-ordered with a shorter 24.75" scale length for player comfort, Adirondack spruce top and braces, hide-glue construction and a slimmer 1-11/16" nut width. It has the full, rich, airy tone that SCGC OM's are known for, with superb. Includes Ameritage hardshell case.
