Santa Cruz Q&A

Who makes Santa Cruz guitar cases? Santa Cruz guitar cases are made by Ameritage Guitar Cases in Costa Rica. 

What is a Santa Cruz guitar? A Santa Cruz guitar is a high-end hand-built boutique guitar brand where the guitars are built by a small team in a small workshop. They only build a few hundred guitars per year, unlike companies like Taylor or Martin that build tens of thousands of guitars per year. Master Luthier, Richard Hoover borrows from the Stradivarius violin building tradition while melding traditional pre-war guitar building techniques to offer a light and resonant guitar with great tonal depth and an ease of playing that brings the music out of you.

What are the best strings for a Santa Cruz Guitar? The best strings for Santa Cruz guitars are the Santa Cruz mid or low tension strings. Small body guitars should use low tension and larger guitars such as Slope D, D and OM can handle mid tension strings.
