We're impressed. Between the dark sunburst Adirondack Spruce top, the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, and the 12-fret neck, it's hard to tell which is more attractive. Of course when you put all three together, the result is more gorgeous than any one element--this 2004 Santa Cruz 12-Fret D sings like a throaty angel from another world.

Fingerstyle or with flatpicks, the voice is rich and expressive, but amazingly balanced for a Slope Dreadnought. The bass response is clean and well-defined, and doesn't dominate; great for fingerpicked vocal accompaniment or lead work where you're incorporated big chord voicings. This Slope D was originally commissioned by Chris Hillman himself, who requested a custom soft V neck carve and the sexily smoked sunburst. Every last detail, right down to the Grained Ivoroid bindings and Zigzag backstrip, is executed in fine style.

2004 Santa Cruz 12-Fret D -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This is why I love Slope Shoulder Dreads: a little smoother in the trebles, a smidge rounder in the bass. The 12-fret neck places the bridge such that the Adirondack top is better activated, so there's extra warmth to fill in the voice. A hard one to put down." - Paul Heumiller

"I love this guitar. It's reminiscent of the earliest Martin dreadnoughts with a bit of a vintage Gibson vibe thrown in for good measure. It responds well to strumming, flatpicking, and fingerpicking, and is a perfect all-around guitar. The Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides is some of the best I've seen. Very tempting. " - Al Petteway
