Santa Cruz Guitar Company's dreadnoughts are designed to accommodate the modern guitar player while still maintaining that distinctive dreadnought sound, and this custom model is a perfect example of Santa Cruz's exceptional build quality. This Custom D was built in 1995, featuring a beautiful set of Brazilian rosewood back and sides and a German spruce top. The slender V-shaped mahogany neck makes this guitar smooth and easy to play while the advanced X bracing gives it a powerful and instantly recognizable sound.

The finish on this model has checked in several places, but aside from that, this 26-year-old guitar remains in excellent structural condition and is set up to play. Its original hard case is included.
