This superb Santa Cruz 1929 OO in all Koa body construction is an absolute gem of a small bodied instrument from Richard Hoover and his team out in Santa Cruz, California.
Taking its core aesthetics and feel from the small body steel strings of the American Great Depression, this guitar has an immense amount of character and tone present in its more intimate frame.
The all Koa body construction gifts this instrument with a very sweet and direct sound, with a very quick attack and response that makes for a lively fingerpicker as well as an absolute cannon when you dig in with a flatpick. Not to mention that it looks absolutely jawdropping.
The classic combination of a Mahogany Neck topped with an Ebony Fretboard gives you a familiar and smooth avenue into exploring the more intricate voices of the body's tone woods, and with a subtle V profile and of course gorgeous fretwork the guitar is an effortless joy to play.
The guitar comes with a Santa Cruz Fitted Hardcase.
