❌SOLD❌ Santa Cruz 1929-OO LH Left Handed Steel String Guitar, 2013


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here’s a beautiful, very good condition Santa Cruz 1929-OO LH Left Handed, Mahogany body OO size guitar 12 fret guitar, patterned on the classic simplicity of 1929 models. It is unusual to find an available left handed guitar of this quality.

The Santa Cruz Guitar Company has been based in Santa Cruz California since 1976 and was founded by Richard Hoover.   They currently produce around 400 guitars a year,  a fraction of the output of larger instrument manufacturers.    This allows closer attention to detail in every aspect of construction, and access to rarer woods that are only available in quantities too small for a large builder. 

This exceptional Santa Cruz 1929-OO left-handed guitar uses the OO, 12 fret body size and a 12 fret neck, as was universal before Martin introduced the 14-fret neck for guitarists migrating from banjos. The top, back, sides, neck, body binding and body blocks are Mahogany, with Ebony for the pyramid bridge and unbound fingerboard. The vintage-scalloped bracing set is Sitka Spruce. A small faux-tortoise teardrop pickguard rests on top of the finish – unlike original models, where it was glued directly to the top, a practice that over time typically resulted in top cracks. Tuners are by Waverly with black buttons. The neck has a pronounced, vintage V profile, and the small dot markers are custom features.  As is the case for other Santa Cruz models, this guitar uses a dovetail neck joint rather than a bolt-on system for superior acoustic coupling.

While this guitar has been used by a studio professional, it is in very good condition. The only detectable wear is in the form of some light marking to the top around and on the pickguard. It’s been very well taken care of.

This original Santa Cruz hard shell case,  very well padded,  is included.
