Description

Small but fierce, this Santa Cruz Firefly from 2009 is an excellent addition to anyone's collection. In addition to having the smooth playability for which Santa Cruz guitars are famous, this little bottle rocket also has some pretty explosive projection and trebles with an extra toothy bite! Old Time tunes or Blues licks sound particularly impressive on the Firefly, and the Indian Rosewood back and sides, paired with a Red Cedar top, help flesh out the voice to include some rich overtones in the bass register.

Conveniently-sized for travel, this Santa Cruz nevertheless has a surprisingly loud voice, and manages to avoid the plunky pitfalls that most guitars of this size suffer from.

Heaps of fun, the perfect size to grab and go, and it's been built to Santa Cruz's exacting specifications, so it plays as smooth as glass.
 
What a fun guitar to play. Built with the best materials and workmanship for a smaller person, this guitar still sounds and plays great. If there is a young player who deserves a fine instrument, this may be the perfect solution. I've always felt that guitars should be built in smaller sizes the same way that they do violins. It makes it much easier to learn the proper technique when the person isn't struggling to reach the notes.
