Santa Cruz FTC

SKU 1373
“The FTC looks and sounds like nothing else out there and on this evidence, you’d be hard pushed to find anything, regardless of price, that looks and sounds better – or even comes close.” – Acoustic Magazine

Having had such a wonderful time restoring a 1980s FTC for Eric Clapton in 2015, it was an easy choice to put the carved back, flat top F cutaway model into production once again, offering players a most unique instrument that has the projection of an archtop. This custom fingerstyle FTC Model features Flamed Maple sides/back, a European Spruce top, tapered Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue, Ivoroid / Black / Ivoroid body, fingerboard and peghead binding, black back strip, Ivoroid rosette, purfle combo top border, deco fretboard inlay, Tobacco sunburst finish, Schaller Imperial tuners. It is set up with SCGC Parabolic Mid Tension strings and comes with a deluxe hard shell case.
