Santa Cruz D Pre War

Articulation at its best. 

The guys at Santa Cruz said about it that “The D/PW’s powerful volume, overtones and rich presence is an epiphany to the uninitiated. There are no unnecessary design features on this model, simply the finest materials treated to SCGC’s state of the art lutherie.” We couldn’t agree more!

This guitar is a joy to play, playing it for the first time makes you feel as if you’ve never really played an acoustic guitar before.
Everything vibrates, the strings sing, the room is being filled with overtones and you immediately smile.

It isn’t a fancy one and looks pretty understated, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Anything you will play on it will simply sound perfect, with healthy low end (thanks to it’s pre-war X bracing) which does not compromises the openness and livelihood of the guitar.

Yes, it is expensive, but one note is enough to understand why.
