Santa Cruz D Custom 'European Spruce / Indian Rosewood' Acoustic Guitar

The Santa Cruz D Model stands out with its unique tapered bracing, carefully voiced to enhance the midrange and treble while maintaining a solid bass volume. Unlike traditional dreadnoughts, this model offers a more even balance and greater versatility, accommodating the needs of modern players. With its innovative approach and unparalleled craftsmanship, the Santa Cruz D Model remains a favourite among artists who demand acoustic volume without compromising the quality of higher frequencies.

This custom-ordered Model D is a true masterpiece, featuring a stunning combination of tonewoods. The back and sides showcase a gorgeous set of East Indian Rosewood, with a flawless European spruce top. Premium appointments include ebony fretboard and bridge, tapered Adirondack spruce bracing with hide glue construction, genuine mahogany neck and MOP Santa Cruz fretboard logo.

Beyond its captivating aesthetics, this dreadnought offers a tone that will leave you in awe. With its clarity, balance, complexity, and depth, it delivers a familiar yet fresh sound that exemplifies Santa Cruz's exceptional talent and ability. Every detail reflects the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail that Santa Cruz is known for.

Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.
