LR Baggs Presents Santa Cruz Guitar Company. This short film narrated by Richard Hoover, founder of Santa Cruz Guitar Company, documents the culture of their boutique lutherie and a mission to provide exceptional instruments for musicians that truly change the world.

We knew we liked the incredible power and versatility of the H model by Santa Cruz and we knew we liked the warm, open sound of their 1929 all-mahogany OOs...why not combine the two?  And why not torrefy the top, back, and sides?  The result is like that curious feeling that happens on walks in the woods where the forest (a deep, dark, ancient forest, in this case) feels like it's breathing all around you.  That natural woody, airy sound of mahogany is further concentrated and embellished with more bloom and a slight longer decay than usual through the torrefaction process.  The wonderfully full dynamic spectrum of the H model serves to deepen and expand that organic tonality into a sound that will fill you and the room you're in unlike any other.

Compared to other all-hog small-bodied guitars, this H14 has significantly less mid-range honk in favor of the aforementioned nuance from bass to treble--the torrefied mahogany in this case makes the H model sound more like a cello than a baby grand. As with all H models, this one's going to appeal to flat- and finger-pickers alike.  Call us up today to find out more about what makes this fantastic guitar one of our favorites so far from Santa Cruz!  

Long an honored presence in the Santa Cruz collection, the 1930’s inspired H Model joined our 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.

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.
