Some info on Tunnel 13 Redwood:

Southern Pacific Railroad's Siskiyou Summit Tunnel #13 was built in the 1880s using virgin Redwood timbers harvested in Southwestern Oregon. These timbers witnessed the October 11, 1923 hold-up of the SP Train 13 Gold Special, pulling 13 cars, by the DeAutremont brothers. These magnificent Redwood timbers were salvaged from the historic tunnel after a fire in 2004, and Santa Cruz got hold of some of them. When this wood was tested, it was discovered to be exceptional, master-grade tonewood, air-dried in this tunnel for more than 120 years...

More info on the Santa Cruz OM and detailed specs...

In the 1920′s, the Orchestra Model was originally intended to be a large guitar capable of being heard over other orchestral instruments, hence the OM name. Although it fit the bill, its relatively large body was soon eclipsed by the mighty dreadnought. Fortunately, the OM had secured its place in history as a powerful and versatile voice for public performance. Santa Cruz was among the first modern builders to reintroduce this now smaller bodied favorite at the beginning of the Eighties. Our practice of combining the most desirable attributes of old and new, rather than copying, made for a very successful introduction of the Santa Cruz Guitar Company to a whole new audience. With some irony, this acclaim encouraged the venerable originator of the OM to reintroduce the model to their line. Eric Clapton’s historic performance on the debut of MTV Unplugged set us on a course for another 25 years of success with this now perennial favorite.

This beautiful, toneful, RARE specimen is looking for its forever home. And it will not last long. Get it while it's here!
