I generally have a lot of really fine acoustic guitars around here, but this one has to be one of the best I’ve played. This is Portland jazz guitarist Eric Skye’s signature 12-fret 00 model, with a short 24.9 scale, slotted peghead, Adirondack top, and some drop dead gorgeous cocobolo back and sides. Lightly built with scalloped braces and hot hide glue construction, with a slightly deeper body for extra low end. This one is customized with a 1 3/4 nut and an abalone top border. A stunner. Lifetime warranty and beautiful Ameritage case.
Here is how Santa Cruz describes it:
Portland based jazz guitarist Eric Skye was named by 20th Century Guitar Magazine as “one of the best rising stars of the American acoustic jazz scene.” This hardworking instrumentalist has gained a loyal following both as a dramatic and expressive live performer and an in-demand acoustic guitar instructor both in Oregon and in the online music community. He has been featured in magazines such as Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Jazziz and Jazz Improv, and his music can be heard on NPR. To match his distinct personality and playing style, Eric and Richard collectively dreamed up a gorgeous Cocobolo OO with an Adirondack top, unique 24.9 inch scale length for ease of playability, slightly deeper body for added bass and volume, hot hide glue with Adirondack Spruce, scalloped bracing and a distinctive ivoroid rosette. This instrument is designed for the excruciatingly accurate and sophisticated techniques of the most demanding jazz fingerstylist.
