Gorgeous! Could you add a picture of the entire guitar (including headstock) please?

Stunning!

Chatoyance!

Unreal.

Carolyn Sills, do you sell second hand SCguitars ?

I think I saw the raw wood for this guitar when I paid a visit to the shop earlier this year. It looks even more beautiful completely finished.

Pretty magical. We got one instrument using this incredible tonewood when I worked at Caruso's. Here are the original loggers pictured with "The Tree" before it was felled.

You guys just keep outdoing yourselves, building one great guitar after another, and each more beautiful than the last! YOU CONTINUE TO TRULY AMAZE ME! (not an easy thing to do!) In this world of cheap manufacturing, corner-cutting corporate greed, and planned obsolescence, Santa Cruz Guitar Company shines as a beacon of old-world pride in craftsmanship, combined with all the modern tools and techniques available. Your art goes way beyond being the finest luthiery in the world...you guys have literally renewed my faith in humanity. Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing your next amazing creation!

Wow, beautiful!

What a beauty!

Amazing Richard and Carolyn Sills!

I have been using Santa Cruz Parabolic strings for the last year or so on all of my acoustic guitars. Until recently I had never played a SCGC guitar. I was browsing the internet and I came across a deal I could live with on a Santa Cruz 1929 00. Wow… this guitar changed guitar playing for me. It has such a pronounced midrange that makes playing melodies ring out so beautifully. Since receiving the guitar a couple of weeks ago, I began writing songs on, which I had never written a song in my life up until this point. I love my new Santa Cruz so much I bought a SECOND one that should be arriving in a day or so from this post. You have truly gained a new follower and lifetime player of your instruments. I’m absolutely thrilled.
