Long an honored presence in the Santa Cruz collection, the 1930’s inspired H Model joined the catalog in 1977 during the formative years of the company. Most players are astonished when they play the Santa Cruz H for the first time. Its volume is startling for a small-bodied guitar. The body’s depth allows for a much larger presence than would be expected in an instrument of its size. The guitar’s balanced hand voicing gives the H a precise response at every fretboard position. This model is highly recommended for those who prefer the sweetness and ease of playing a small guitar but require more comfort and volume. I ordered this one in mahogany with a 1 3/4 nut. Double-tapered braces with a scallop on the bass side. A very versatile instrument. Lifetime warranty and handsome Santa Cruz case by Ameritage.
