We're calling this Santa Cruz Guitars H-13 Custom "Black Beauty" because of the striking black finish! In Mahogany/Sitka Spruce, this Custom H-13 has the diminished frets with the howling wolf inlay, the black finish, Adirondack braces with Hot Hide Glue, the Round neck profile, Ivoroid peghead, body and neck binding, and Cowboy Rope Rosette and Purfling..
SCGC’s concept for the H-13 is to achieve power beyond what would be expected in a small-bodied guitar. Two fundamental lutherie tricks make this possible: a longer string length (more downward pressure at the saddle) and more air space via a deeper body (increased volume and bass response). To place the bridge in the optimal position for power and maintain the longer string length, the neck needs to join the body at the 13th fret. The H-13 is a gorgeous classic with power and presence expected from a much larger instrument. Perfect for aggressive fingerstyle blues and vocal accompaniment, the H-13 feels really sweet to hold.
Here's a video demo of two other H-13 guitars.
