This NOS (New Old Stock) Santa Cruz Guitars Style 1 Custom is adorned with East Indian Rosewood back and sides, Redwood top with a subtle Sunburst similar to the 'Cowboy Singer' burst, Cowboy Rope Rosette & Purfling, 1 3/4" nut width instead of the 1 11/16" standard, and the exclusive Bluedog 'Howling Wolf' Scrimshaw heelcap. The Style 1 is a 12 Fret 0 size guitar.
This guitar reminds me of a mini H-13 in tone and volume - but in a deep-body Parlour-sized package!
The original body shapes of the fledgling C.F. Martin & Co. included the Size 1, a relatively large guitar for the era. Fast-forward to the new millennium where this design is very well suited for contemporary fingerstyle techniques. Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s interpretation of this wonderfully sized instrument is in response to players’ demands for this traditionally sweet sounding guitar. SCGC’s ability to achieve surprising volume and presence in a smaller-bodied instrument gives the Style 1 a solid position in the contemporary guitarist’s repertoire.
