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.

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.
