The perfect pitch.
The Santa Cruz 00 12 is an extremely balanced guitar, a surprisingly loud one we might add. At first note you might not understand why we describe it as “balanced”, as the majority of guitar players are used to hear a lot of low end, but once you play the 00 12 a bit, you will realise that you hear every frequency in your music in a loud, clear and organically balanced way. The demoed 00 12 was a custom one featuring a beautiful flamed Mahogany body and Redwood top. This combination adds to the overall sound extra warmth and character. Thanks to its smaller scale (measured at 24.75″ / 628.5mm) the 00 12 is tuned to pitch using less string tension, in other words, less force is needed when pressing the strings making this guitar an extremely comfortable companion.
