The Catfish Special! New Signature Model for 2018.
Santa Cruz Guitar Company is thrilled to debut The Catfish Special, a custom 1929 O model built for our friend and world renowned blues musician, Catfish Keith. After building a custom, all Mahogany O for Catfish a few years back, fans around the world kept asking for more information on this ‘little guitar with the giant voice.’ Following Catfish’s riveting performance at our 40th anniversary party and the reaction it received, it was obvious that a signature model version of this customized 1929 O would be a welcome addition to our catalog. We are proud to present The Catfish Special!
A ‘Professional’ version of this model is also available, offering the same Catfish peghead inlay and custom bubble fingerboard inlays as found on Catfish Keith’s personal guitar. Please inquire for details.
