Details

Designed specifically with fingerstyle players in mind, the Santa Cruz FS was made to accommodate open tunings and complex fingerstyle arrangements. The master luthiers at Santa Cruz put a special focus on the reduced tension of open tunings and the minimized energy imparted from a player’s fingertips to create a sophisticated instrument that responds with volume and immediacy. This FS features a moon spruce top, and cocobolo back, and sides, as well as Cocobolo body binding and peghead veneer. The specially engineered design of the FS, matched with its unique combination of woods, rewards a player with a full and balanced articulate sound, brilliant yet warm overtones, rich sustain, and ease of playing that compliments the dynamics and touch of fingerstyle guitar.
