Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo

Appealing looks and an immense tone… 

The Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo is the ideal blues guitar. A deep, rich bass, sweet trebles and an astonishing amount of overtones. Santa Cruz captured in this guitar the coolness and the essence of the classic round-shouldered dreadnoughts of the 1940’s. 

The sitka spruce top and the premium mahogany back&sides merge in a powerful tone with a lot of clarity. The lush and balanced sound is great for chord-oriented playing and accompanying vocalists. A true masterpiece made from very old wood by some of the most talented luthiers. Quite an investment but for sure a lifelong companion.
