Sometimes less is more and this SCGC OM cutaway is a great example. The "less" refers only to some cosmetic details, such as the binding and inlay, while the "more" is related to its sound and easier access to upper frets thanks to the rounded cutaway. SCGC introduced the "Pre War" OM and D models years ago as the plainer binding and lack or marquetry and inlay allowed the builders to deliver the same tone and playability at a slightly lower price. But while pursuit of practicality resulted in a more austere look, the iconic no-frills aesthetic is now recognized as having a beauty all its own. For the guitar player who doesn't need a lot of flash but who appreciates clean design and impeccable workmanship, this Santa Cruz OM delivers what matters most.
