This is a new Santa Cruz OM, rosewood/sitka, that sustained a small crack at the end pin during shipping. This guitar would sell for $7500 if you ordered it new today. Santa Cruz estimated the repair cost at $250, the end pin is reinforced by a wood block inside the guitar, so it is a cosmetic repair. The guitar was not sent back to Santa Cruz due to the current shutdown, so you can save some bucks and just live with it, or repair it later at your leisure. I will be sending the guitar back to Santa Cruz when things calm down, but it’s here at a nice discount if you want it. Otherwise in new condition, Ameritage case, etc. … a terrific OM. As is, where is. Here’s the crack (emphasized with light, not as obvious just looking at the guitar).
The Orchestra Model is one of the stalwarts in Santa Cruz’s lineup, one session with this guitar and you’ll know why. Very alive, great note separation, terrific balance and impeccable build quality. Equally at home with flat picking or finger style. Beautifully silked sitka spruce top, nicely figured Indian rosewood, scalloped bracing, ebony fretboard, nickel Waverleys with bound headstock and neck and a 1.75 nut. Lifetime warranty and handsome Santa Cruz case by Ameritage.
