    Santa Cruz were one of the first guitar companies to use bench style production methods in a small to mid sized setting. This approach was initially used to recreate classic vintage Flattop guitars as well as more contempory fingerstyle instruments. In fact, one of the first handmade guitars I ever played was a great OM from the folks down in California!

    The luthiers working at Santa Cruz from this period such as Jeff Traugott and Roy Mcallister have gone on to achieve high praise for their individual work. This instrument is a custom order with nicely figured Koa back and sides and a wider nut width to suit a fingerstyle approach.
