In flawless condition, and with an impeccable voice, this 1999 Santa Cruz Dreadnought is a powerhouse you won't want to pass up. With gorgeous straight-grained Cocobolo Rosewood for the back and sides, and German Spruce for the top, you'll find the tone rich and expressive, and capable of ferocious projection.
The last owner kept this baby in pristine shape, too, so this is as close as a guitarist can hope to get to a new guitar from Santa Cruz.

"A great copy of a vintage Martin sound, look and feel. This could be a great guitar for all styles of music. " - Al Petteway
