Santa Cruz OM, short scale with scalloped braces, in great condition with a lovely patina on the Sitka spruce top. The back and sides are Indian Rosewood. This guitar was made in 2011 and has had 7 years to open up, sounds fantastic. This one has some custom upgrades and the retail price on a new one would be £6000. I am asking £3500 so this is an opportunity to make a significant saving.

Custom options:

Short Scale:

(In Martin terminology the guitar would be called a 000-28. The scale length is shorter meaning that the strings have less tension when tuned to pitch, this makes bending easier)

Hot Hide Glue with Adirondack Braces:

(Here is what Carolyn from Santa Cruz told me this about this option. "Adding the Adirondack bracing/hot hide glue is always recommended. it will add more resonance to the sound, as Adirondack is a great conductor of resonance, and the hide glue is the hardest drying adhesive, so there is no break in the vibrations as they travel from the bracing into the top of the guitar… It will give it a more vintage sound from the get go")

The original Ameritage case case, which is in fantastic condition, is included along with all of the original paperwork.

The guitar is all original, no replaced parts. The frets are in great shape. There is some very minor play wear here and there and one light pick mark on the cusp of the sound hole. As you can see from the pictures it has been well taken care of and looks beautiful. The guitar has been set up to play with low action and is all ready to be played and enjoyed. I will send the package from Paris to anywhere in Europe, fully insured.
