Presents: Episode 8. Santa Cruz Custom 000 in Figured Walnut & Sitka Spruce

For Episode 8 of Presents, new TNAG staff member Jordan takes a look at this pre-war inspired, custom 12-fret 000 from our friends at Santa Cruz Guitar Company.

Santa Cruz Custom 000 in Figured Walnut & Sitka Spruce - $8,195

We love a great 000-12 fret guitar, and this custom Santa Cruz is no exception. With a beautiful old growth bear-claw Sitka spruce top and figured walnut back and sides, this guitar pairs unique aesthetics with a classic pre-war design. It features Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue construction, making it deeply resonant. When played fingerstyle, this guitar is sweet and responsive, with excellent balance across the strings, and great playability. The 12-fret body offers more volume and projection than its 14-fret counterparts, making it perfect for fingerpicked blues licks, as well as light to medium flatpicking. This is an excellent guitar that pairs what we love about 1930s small-body guitars with the refined craftsmanship of Santa Cruz Guitar Company.
