      Looks like the F and the OMG are similar size guitars; what are the differences? Especially tone and intended style/usage?

      That’s a great question Occimoron.  One I’ve investigated myself and played as much of each as I could.  Looking forward to hearing the answer from Richard.

      I, too, look forward to reading SCGC’s reply.

      Based on my limited experience of playing one F model and two OMG models in the same store (all Sitka/EIR), it seems the F model has more brilliance, and the OMGs a bit darker.

      The F I played had a very compliant voicing, what I put in was what I got out and I really liked that.  It sounded a tad smaller, but I’m sure it had old strings and was asleep because that shop hadn’t moved any SC guitars in a while.  The OM Grand seems like it adds a bit more voicing to the sound.  I’ve always been curious about their internal perspective and what guitar belongs to what kind of player

      I’m also curious about the dimensions of each. I don’t see anything on the Santa Cruz site that gives the dimensions, like width of lower bout, body depth and length.
