Here’s a briefly owned and gently used Santa Cruz Style 1. Based on the original Size 1 Martin guitar, the Santa Cruz Style 1 is a deep-bodied 0-sized guitar, a 12-fretter, harkening back to the days when a parlor sized guitar was the norm. This guitar is so small and comfortable to play, but has a surprisingly big voice, and it immediately says “vintage” to my ears. Very traditional sound, equally at home fingerpicked or strummed. Perfect for blues or old-timey music. What a sweet guitar. Very nice condition, just some light play wear, no dings or dents, etc. With Santa Cruz’s fine Ameritage case.
