2000 Santa Cruz Custom H 12 String All Koa

2000 Santa Cruz Custom H 12 String All Koa

Long an honored presence in the Santa Cruz collection, the 1930's inspired H Model joined the famed luthier's catalog in 1977 during the formative years of the company. This was a challenging era to introduce a non-Dreadnought, non-12-fret guitar. Opting to be favored by natural selection, SCGC presented the now standard 14 frets to the body configuration to an audience that valued the additional 2-fret access on such a classic, vintage body.

This custom 2000 Santa Cruz H 12 String features an all Koa body, and on this particular instrument the figuring of the Koa is absolutely stunning. With rich, contrasting ripples that cascade down the length of the body; leave it to Santa Cruz to provide choice woods such as this. The tone of this guitar is rich and powerful with a focus in the mid-range that seems to fall in between mahogany and rosewood.  The high end is crystal clear without being overpowering.

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. Although many would associate a 12string with a very large body style, and very large neck; this custom version is a joy to play for long periods, with the neck being comfortable, while still providing the necessary room for chording.

This custom guitar was recently sent to Santa Cruz Guitar Company for a full check-up / setup by their technicians, and returned with a clean bill of health. Because this instrument is over a decade old there are some minor /assorted scratches and dings throughout, as well as some minor separation in the binding that can be seen in the photographs below. With some sets of highly figured Koa the wood begins to "set", which we did our best to capture in the photographs.  This does not effect the tone or stability of this guitar. Original Hardshell Case included.
