That's delicious. Larrivee also does walnut very well.

That’s a beautiful OM, if it sounds as good as it looks, it must be wonderful.

But you shoulda tried a Lowden Cedar/Walnut - mine’s amazing!

Absolutely. Last shopping trip I played Santa Cruz, Collings, Bourgeois and Lowden - all beautiful instruments.

For me it was the Lowden, followed closely by the Bourgeois.

Beautiful guitar! I bet it sounds terrific. I’m a big fan of walnut. I currently own 2 Adi/Walnut guitars and love the way they look and sound. Using a non-threatened species of wood is attractive too.

That's a beauty and I'm sure it sounds as good as you say. I have played numerous walnut bodied guitars that I've been really impressed with.

There's a very positive development going on for a while now in guitar building. Years ago when sustainability discussions picked up steam, early efforts to build with alternative woods were -IMHO- mostly focused on just being able to claim being "environmentally responsible" and not so much on the quality of the end product.(E.g., Martin "Sustainability Series."). The results were ho-hum at best.

Eventually -and fortunately- more serious effort was made in building these alternative wood bodies with emphasis on playability, tone, etc. "Suddenly" there were great alternative wood bodied guitars being produced. My cherry bodied Bourgoise LDBO, shocked me (in a good way) the first time I played it. Ten years ago I would have said "no way would I ever buy a cherry wood guitar", based on the ones I had played. Now mine is a lifer.

Anyway congratulations! Beautiful guitar, great choice!

I saw that guitar on the "Just Shipped" page of the S.C. website. i wondered who the lucky new owner was....Congrats on a beautiful Santa Cruz OM.
Let us know on the SCGCPF how you like it after you've played for awile.
