Richard Hoover, SCGC’s founding luthier, calls the classic OM design “the most sophisticated sounding steel string guitar that modern luthiery has achieved”. SCGC’s newOM Grandmodel is a bigger, lusher, louder sister to their extremely popular interpretation of the world renowned OM design. In comparison, the OM Grand embodies the same elegance, only in increased quantity of volume, projection and bass. More isn’t necessarily better, though in the context of a band’s competing acoustic instruments the ‘more’ of the OM Grand assures the guitars rightful dominance in the ensemble.
In preparing the templates for this new body size, Richard saw this enhanced sized OM as a fine addition to the stellar line-up of SCGC standard models, and the concept of the OM Grand was born.The strength of the OM Grand isn’t limited to sheer volume. In the sometimes restrained presence of solo fingerstyle playing, the inherent power of this guitar will generate a forceful bloom, requiring less effort with no loss of nuance.The best available tone woods are selected, voiced and tuned, as they are on all SCGC models. These include Indian Rosewood, responsibly harvested from the highest quality timbers, Sitka Spruce from British Colombia and premium Forest Stewardship Council Certified Mahogany from sustainable resources.
