OM sized acoustic guitars are extremely popular among acoustic guitar players. They are comfortable to play and tend to have a well defined tone. The Santa Cruz OM Grand is all that and more. The story of the OM Grand is a collaboration between SC's founder, Richard Hoover, and his friends at The Denver Folklore Center. The request of the center was to have a custom OM with more power, and the result is the OM Grand – a larger bodied OM. The OM Grand is a great guitar for band playing as it's loudness is sufficient. Also solo artists who seek for the openness of the OM with a bit more headroom and body, might find the Santa Cruz OM Grand perfect for their needs.
