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.

Small body guitars are a vintage design that is coming back into favor again and if you've gone from a dreadnought to a parlor size body you typically notice that while the EQ might be well balanced and have good bass response, you can only get so much volume and projection out of a smaller wooden body. The style 1 from Santa Cruz is one of the most comfortable and loud fingerstyle-focused guitars I've ever played and if you turned your back to the player I think you'd be surprised by the sweet power that this little instrument can achieve when played with just your fingers. The tone here is warm and huge with the pairing of Sitka on the top and East Indian on the back and sides you get a very nicely filled in sonic spectrum with a deep bass and clear highs! If you are looking for a powerful small body guitar for performing or perhaps a songwriting guitar for those late nights on the couch give us a call today to learn more about this spectacular style 1 from Santa Cruz!

To properly introduce the Santa Cruz Style 1, it is necessary to echo the historic positioning of the SCGC PJ guitar.  The parlor-style body was the pinnacle of the art of guitar making up until the late 19th century. This was the optimal size for tonal perfection. The reason guitars got bigger was to make them louder. With amplification and modern recording techniques, we can once again embrace sound quality over sound quantity.
The original body shapes of the fledgling C.F. Martin & Co. included the Size 1, a relatively large guitar for the era. Fast-forward to the new millennium where this design is very well suited for contemporary fingerstyle techniques. Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s interpretation of this wonderfully sized instrument is in response to players’ demands for this traditionally sweet sounding guitar. SCGC’s ability to achieve surprising volume and presence in a smaller-bodied instrument gives the Style 1 a solid position in the contemporary guitarist’s repertoire.
