From Santa Cruz –
“The OOO is the full sized version of the 1929 Model series. A longer, 25.375 inch scale for additional volume and bass make it a worthy ensemble instrument. You will find the same simple and elegant aesthetics of the 1929-O and 1929-OO versions. The master grade True Mahogany top is correctly dimensioned and hand voiced for a full and complex presence, and the elements for an heirloom guitar are all in place. The 1929-OOO’s look includes a period correct script logo done tastefully in Ivoroid. Classic Ebony complements the pyramid bridge, tuner buttons, head-plate and fretboard. An appropriately simple rosette is inlaid with a rich faux tortoise shell celluloid ring in a vintage Ivoroid border. The 1929-OOO Model has all the exceptional presence and playability that you would expect from the Santa Cruz stable of state of the art acoustic guitars.”

The Santa Cruz 1929 Series is designed to evoke the spartan beauty of instruments produced during the 1929 Great Depression, with scalloped bracing, period-correct script lettering and tuners, and simple rosette and pickguard designs.
The 1929 OOO model is an all-mahogany bodied guitar with a 25.375″ scale length, sitting above the O and OO models which have smaller bodies and shorter scale lengths.
This is a California built OOO with fantastic presence and balance, in super clean condition. This guitar has a surprising amount of midrange and high-end chime – it rings out with complex harmonics, and surprising volume from a smaller bodied instrument.
This 1929-000 is in terrific shape. There is no visible wear other than some very light marks on the pick guard, and a small impression on the top lower bout. It has a soft-V shaped solid mahogany neck with white side dots. The markerless ebony fingerboard is quite beautiful and the frets show no wear. The ebony headstock is overlaid with the cream coloured Santa Cruz logo. Open gear Gotoh tuners function perfectly. 1 3/4″ nut width, 25.375” scale length. Neck is straight and truss rod functions perfectly.
A bonus is that it has a pickup installed, possibly after an market unit, so we don’t know the brand or specs, but it sounds fine.
Weight is flyaway light at less than 4 lbs
Comes in its original hard shell case in new condition.
