The Latest from SCGC
Dear all at Santa Cruz,
Last year I was fortunate enough to purchase one of your fine model D guitars.
I was looking for a studio instrument that would sit in a mix without battling for space.
I tried many many guitars from most of the renowned builders but kept coming back to the Santa Cruz.
It just had a sweetness and lack of boominess that I knew would avoid me spending too much time fighting to fit it into a busy arrangement.
It has now been recorded dozens of times and all I have to do is put a Mic in front of it and there it is. A perfect guitar sound.
Thank you for making such a brilliant instrument.
