I love getting the little teaser pics along the way! Congrats on the build. I've always wanted a Santa Cruz guitar. Looking forward to seeing the progress.

Iíve had my SCGC OM for 20 plus years and it is still fabulous. Iíll never get rid of it. The only OM I have preferred is the Grand - Iíve played 3 and they were all stunning. Enjoy!

I tried an OM Grand at CME a few weeks back and it almost followed me home. What a versatile guitar it was!

The top braces are quite Martinesque. The two back braces are quite big.

I can almost picture Richard Hoover himself tap tuning that top...from high pitch to low pitch as he moves his finger across the lower bout.

Great looking wood, Paul. Gonna be a winner me thinks...

The cocobolo back looks beautiful~ I think Italian/Cocobolo will make a great combo!

I love my Santa Cruz koa OM, It's going to be 20 years old this year and I'll never get rid of it. I love the look of that straight grained Cocobolo.
