Santa Cruz OM Custom "The Tree"

The rarest Tonewood in the world arrives at Art of Guitar after a two year wait! Let’s take an look..

 

Introducing the Santa Cruz OM Custom "The Tree" - a truly exceptional guitar that combines this most rare and exquisite tonewood with the expert craftsmanship of Richard Hoover to create an instrument of unparalleled beauty and sound.

 

Crafted from "The Tree” a highly prized and sought after wild figured Mahogany from a single famous tree that was over 500 years old when it was cut down in the 1960’s in Belize. Lost to the jungle, this tree was rediscovered over a decade later in the mid 1970’s lying in a ravine. Still considered to this day to be the very best Mahogany available, the mesmerizing geometric patterned figuring found on this premium set is an extremely rare find, plus there just is not much of it left in the world today. The fact this wood only comes from one specific tree makes it some of the rarest wood in the world, the body of this guitar is a work of art in and of itself. Paired with a Fort Ross "Chapel" sinker redwood top and Adirondack braces attached with hot hide glue, this guitar delivers a balanced and clear tone with excellent projection and sustain.

 

The wood binding on the body, fingerboard, and peghead, all crafted from Indian Rosewood, adds a touch of elegance to the instrument's design. The tail wedge, Indian Rosewood back strip, and custom peghead overlay, a bespoke design and also made from "The Tree," provide a unique touch of visual flair.

 

The wood-style rosette and purfle combo top border further enhance the guitar's aesthetic appeal, and the SCGC logo on the fingerboard adds a touch of distinction.

 

The SCGC "Tree" finish on the back, sides, and overlay complements the instrument's natural beauty, bringing out the rich and unique grain patterns of "The Tree" mahogany. The unique tear drop finish cannot be found in any other wood and makes the guitar aesthetics truly exceptional.

 

With its balanced tone, dynamic range, and exceptional playability, the Santa Cruz OM Custom "The Tree" exemplifies the best in modern luthiery and is a true collector's item that is sure to inspire and delight any guitarist.

Plaved as a bespoke order with Richard two years ago this could be the very last of its kind to be built, and it’s right here in our award winning Gallery. So why wait? Come and experience the magic of "The Tree" at Art of Guitar today.
