SCGC’s take on the legendary pre-war D-18.
Santa cruz has a philosophy that says “to combine, not copy”. In other words, they do not replicate famous models, they study them and refine what there is to refine in order to make their guitars up to date and iconic in their own right. The story of the Santa Cruz Vintage Artist began in 1991, when Richard Hoover and several vintage guitar experts tried to identify what makes the pre-war Martin D-18 guitars so desirable. The Vintage Artist features an advanced, scalloped X-bracing for powerful bass, complemented by the clear tone and definition of master grade Mahogany.
