Santa Cruz Orchestra model, made in Santa Cruz, California, USA, 1997, serial number OM-999. German spruce top with Brazilian rosewood back and sides. The body, neck, and headstock are bound with ivoroid, and the body top and rosette have herringbone pattern purfling. Brazilian rosewood headplate on mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. Original hardshell case. Excellent condition. Est. $12,000–$14,000

This exceptionally clean Santa Cruz OM was custom ordered with a stunning bookmatched set of Brazilian rosewood and a tightly grained German spruce top. (Such appointments add nearly $15,000 to the base price of a new Santa Cruz OM model.) This 25-year-old guitar plays well and, with the exception of a strap button added to the neck heel cap and a nice patina on the nickel Waverly tuners, it appears nearly new and unplayed.
