Santa Cruz 000-12 Acoustic Guitar, Indian Rosewood & Sitka Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


This beautiful pre-owned Santa Cruz 000-12 is a fantastic example of a classic workhouse built to the exemplary standards of Richard Hoover and his team out in Santa Cruz, California.

The 12-fret neck join does a superb job of coaxing the most out of the comfortable 000 frame of the guitar, with the bridge and sound-hole sitting right in their respective sweet spots and making for a sensitive and dynamic response that shimmers and chimes at low volumes, and roars under a heavy right hand. 

The classic makeup of Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce yields classic results, perfected and inspiring for the finger style traditionalist right through to a flatpicker in a busy mix. With the superb playability one would expect from a Santa Cruz alongside the installation of a Fishman Rare Earth pickup, this stunning instrument is set and ready to go wherever you want to take it! 

The guitar is in excellent condition and comes in its original hardcase.
