Santa Cruz H Model Short-Scale 'Moon Spruce / Mahogany' Acoustic Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne


Experience the stunning combination of vintage aesthetics and exceptional performance with the Santa Cruz H Model Short-Scale 'Moon Spruce / Mahogany' Acoustic Guitar, now available at Acoustic Centre. This 1930s-inspired model captures the essence of a classic, vintage body while offering modern playability and comfort.

Prepare to be astonished by the volume and presence of the Santa Cruz H Model. Despite its small-bodied design, this guitar delivers a startling amount of volume and projection. The precise hand voicing and balanced tonal response at every fretboard position make it a joy to play. Whether you prefer the sweetness and ease of a small guitar or require more comfort and volume, the H Model is a highly recommended choice.

This custom-ordered H Model showcases impeccable tonal selections and a subtle, vintage-inspired aesthetic. The Swiss Moon Spruce top, harvested using traditional Swiss methods, is paired with genuine Mahogany back and sides. Adirondack braces attached with hot hide glue enhance the guitar's resonance and projection. The shorter scale length provides a gentle playing feel, while increasing natural compression and harmonic complexity. Custom appointments like the solid square headstock, vintage-tinted top, and spectacular firestripe pickguard add a touch of luxury and vintage charm.
