      Hi Gang

      I guess this must be my first post here are being a member for some years.

      Im excited to become a Santa Cruz owner later this year, just put in an order for a OM grand. I’ve spec’d out with forward  shifted bracing, long diamonds and squares fretboard inlays, short scale, adi top and indian rosewood back and sides.

      I wanted to make it a bit of an all rounder, bit o picking and a bit o strumming.

      Anyhoo, I’ve been lusting after one ever since I did the factory tour some 5 or 6 whilst on tour with my band – Richard and the crew couldn’t have been nicer.

      Cheers Andrew Melbourne Australia

      Good for you. I’m jealous of coarse. That would be fun. I’ve only purchased ready made SC guitars.

      Sounds terrific Andrew. I worked with Carolyn to spec out an OMG that I took delivery of 3 years ago. It’s amazing and definitely qualifies as a lifetime guitar. Keep us posted on your build. I expect it will be magnificent.

      Thanks for your kind words fellas – will be sure to keep you posted and will be sure to keep you updated.

      I was very close to ordering with mahogany back and sides but the night before I ordered, i watched a youtube demo of a rosewood back and sides – after I picked my jaw up off the floor i was sold on rosewood. In both tone and beauty. I do love mahogany (I even built and 59 LP jnr 100% hog) but the demo was just amazing.

      Anyhoo, the shop I ordered it through hope to take delivery of it in December along with a fresh batch of their own. If I get any progress pics I’ll be sure to post :).

      Now off to do so practice in anticipation.
