2017 Santa Cruz OOO Bearclaw Spruce & Rosewood
Here we have a beautiful example of Bearclaw Spruce on at Santa Cruz OOO 12-fret guitar. This guitar sounds as good as it looks, lush tones with crispness and clarity abound. Elegantly appointed with Herringbone purfling and an Abalone Rosette this guitar is true eye candy. The back features beautiful straight grained Indian Rosewood with a vintage zig zag back strip. On the Ebony fingerboard the look is tied together with slotted square and diamond Abalone inlay. The entire guitar, body, neck and headstock are bound in Ivoroid for a classic high-end look. A few bonus features added to the guitar include a K&K pure mini pickup and a strap pin at the heel of the neck.
Condition: This guitar was no case queen and has some nicks here and there to prove it. There is a ding on the back of the neck (pictured) along with a few scratches on the face of the headstock from re-stringing. There appears to be a thumb nail scratch/dent where one might wrap their thumb around on the first fret. There is light to medium fretwear on the B-String first second and third frets, typical of folk chord fretting. That being said, there is plenty of life and playtime left in these frets! On the inside of the guitar on the right hand side there are a couple magnets leftover from a guitar support (not sure but it was likely a SageWork type stand). There are a few small dings and dents on the top of the guitar and the back and sides along with the usual finish swirling of a well loved guitar. This guitar has medium low action and plays nicely/easily.
Comes with original Santa Cruz case which is missing one latch at the back (pictured)
