Description

If it’s good enough for Bill Coulter, you can bet it’s good enough for us. We’ve just got in a lovely 2016 Santa Cruz OMG, straight from Mr. Coulter himself, with gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and a Bearclaw Moonspruce top. Richard Hoover’s biggie-sized OM model, the OM Grand, boasts a 16 inch lower bout for added volume and sustain, and here assembled with such fine tonewoods the effect is capacious and energetic, with sustain to spare.
This OMG soaks up DADGAD like bread to butter, but makes out handsomely in Standard tuning as well. A wide fingerboard and soft V neck make for uncramped lefthand work, and the addition of a Venetian Cutaway helps keep those uppermost frets dust free. This Santa Cruz really pushes sound out and away from the body, meaning that your audience gets a lot of music in brilliant clarity. William’s been gigging this OMG with a K&K Pure Mini pickup, and we’re happy to report that it sounds sweet and faithful to the acoustic voice. All wrapped up in a Hoffee flight case, this powerhouse Santa Cruz is ready to go the distance, and do it in high style.

Recording artist William Coulter sent us this wonderful Santa Cruz. Richard Hoover and Company sure know how to make a great guitar and this one is one of the best of theirs I’ve ever played. We joked that OMG stands for "Oh My God" because the voice is so strong and powerful. But in fact it’s an OM Grand model. The larger body does indeed give this one bragging rights, and sure makes it fun to play. Of course it’s a great blues and ragtime guitar, but there’s so much beauty in the notes that it’s also perfect for Celtic music and any kind of fingerstyle you want to throw at it. Because of the larger body size it also strums well. This is a great all-arounder for someone who wants Brazilian Rosewood, Moonspruce, a pickup, and a flight case in a beautiful guitar that has been broken in by the likes of Bill Coulter himself.
