Fantastic Finger-Style Favorite For Sale!
This is a 2009 Custom 000 built by Santa Cruz Guitars. This guitar features a phenomenal "highest grade" Cedar top for the fastest response to a light touch attack. We find the guitar to be very versatile in that it actually does very well for not just finger style work but lighter finger picking and even light weight flat pick strumming!
The voicing and tonal characteristics of this guitar are second to none in the finger stylist arsenal of available offerings. The upgraded options found on this guitar start with the fundamentals in it's use of premium tone woods - highest grade Cedar and a incredible back and sides set of figured Mahogany.
From a structural standpoint, the guitar's builder utilized Adirondack bracing to boost headroom and volume with the added benefit of incredible clarity. Hot hide glue was used for the construction of this custom build and the resonance it renders cannot be overlooked from this fine feather light instrument.
From the visual impact the guitar makes, we greatly appreciate the custom appointments such as the Brazilian Rosewood headstock overlay, the Tweed back strip, the vintage style of the inlaid logo, to the tweed herringbone purfling and sound hole rosette on the top. This is a very striking guitar indeed!
