Santa Cruz Guitar Company Custom OM/PW Rosewood Bear Claw w/ Deluxe Ameritage Case
Tobias Music - Chicago Area’s Finest Guitars
Proud of our 20 Year Partnership with the Santa Cruz Guitar Company
Pre-owned custom OM/PW from our friends at Santa Cruz Guitar Company. We ordered this one for our shop originally. Sold to a longtime friend of our shop. Owner is downsizing so we are helping him find a home for this masterpiece.
An orchestra model with one of the nicest ‘Bear claw’ tops that we have seen. A light coating of aging toner on the top makes the details of the wood pop. Paired with premium East Indian Rosewood back and sided, this one has the tone to match the looks. A well cared for instrument, the owner did his due diligence and kept this one probably humidified. There are few extremely small indentations in the top, only visible when catching reflected light. Near perfect. Neck angle is spot on and plenty of saddle for future adjustments. Really nice guitar.
