Here’s a gently used Santa Cruz PreWar dreadnought in near mint condition. As always, it’s light as a feather — big, powerful sound when you dig in yet sensitive and responsive to the lightest touch. Very nicely silked sitka spruce top over East Indian rosewood, with an ebony fretboard. These guitars have become very expensive — it would be $7400 to order this guitar new today.

The Pre-War D honors its pre-WWII predecessors with an advanced X and scalloped top bracing. This time-tested design ensures large bass response and overall volume. It is presented with understated appointments to emphasize master grade materials, tone and workmanship. It is perfect for the aficionado that loves the advantages of a professional boutique instrument without the cost of rare wood and ornamentation. There are no unnecessary design features on this model, simply the finest materials treated to SCGC’s state of the art lutherie. With Santa Cruz’s beautiful Ameritage case. Slight wear to the case, guitar is near mint.
