Possibly one of the most exciting build for us in 2019, is this phenomenal Santa Cruz H13 Custom Acoustic Guitar, 'The Ghost Guitar'. Built in a staggering set of master grade African Blackwood for the back and sides and Ancient Sitka Spruce for the top, that is carbon dated back to 3000 years ago, perfectly reflecting everything that is Santa Cruz Guitars stand for as a company, phenomenal guitars built with phenomenal woods! 

By using such rare and exotic tone woods such as this stunning set of 3000 year old ancient Sitka Spruce, means the resins in the woods have had plenty of time to polymerise and become like crystals making the resonance absolutely incredible.

This instrument is incredibly bright and responsive, producing stunning crisp and clean trebles and smooth bass articulation. A once in a life time purchase that will stop all who play it in the tracks...
