Santa Cruz OO German Spruce Top 816 Acoustic Guitar
Fresh and crisp OO from Santa Cruz that lets you lay back and dig in!
What we think:
If you fingerstyle, then the OO size was made for you. Great bass response with plenty of compression and monster projection. A short scale length means easy string tension that lets you really grab the notes. Classic Santa Cruz light build gives a breezy, light as a feather feeling to the notes you play, it makes what you've heard yourself do a hundred times before sound fresh and novel. Classic herringbone and slotted headstock appointments are also very sharp.
The OO is an ergonomic delight. This instrument delivers ease of playability and surprising volume for its size. Certainly not just a smaller version of the OOO, the OO is a specialized tool onto itself. The 12-fret body and 24-3/4 inch string length tunes to pitch at lower string tension, making the action supple while requiring less of a stretch between frets. The size and voicing of the OO give it an exceptionally balanced EQ with a wonderful complex tone and remarkable projection. This serious instrument is surprisingly loud. The OO’s portability makes it an excellent companion for composing and recording, and its sophisticated voice encourages players to explore undiscovered fretboard possibilities. Holding this guitar just feels right.
