Santa Cruz Style 1 'European Spruce / Indian Rosewood' Acoustic Guitar

1 only in stock

The Santa Cruz Style 1 pays homage to C.F. Martin & Co’s original Size 1 parlor guitar. It is widely believed that the parlor-style body is the ideal size for tonal perfection, and guitars only became larger due to an increased desire for more volume. With modern amplification and recording techniques, SCGC believes “we can once again embrace sound quality over sound quantity”, and their Style 1 does exactly that. 

The classic pairing of a European spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, paired with its slightly deeper parlor body style, creates an exceptionally sweet-sounding guitar. The Style 1 has a surprising amount of volume and presence, without lacking warmth or clarity.

This custom-ordered guitar features premium upgrades, including adirondack braces attached with hot hide glue, an Indian Rosewood headstock overlay and bone bridge pins, as well as custom embellishments that hearken back to the great pre-war Martin 0-28, such as an unbound peghead, vintage tinted top, herringbone purfling and an optional tortoiseshell pickguard in the case. These subtle appointments, along with its world-class tonal options, make this Santa Cruz Style 1 a stylish and ideal choice for contemporary fingerstyle techniques.
