Slotted Headstock OO size Guitar with a 24.9 inch scale! Cocobolo, anyone? One of the nicest pieces we've seen from Santa Cruz in a while!
Portland based jazz guitarist Eric Skye was named by 20th Century Guitar Magazine as “one of the best rising stars of the American acoustic jazz scene.” This hardworking instrumentalist has gained a loyal following both as a dramatic and expressive live performer and an in-demand acoustic guitar instructor both in Oregon and in the online music community. He has been featured in magazines such as Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Jazziz and Jazz Improv, and his music can be heard on NPR. To match his distinct personality and playing style, Eric and Richard collectively dreamed up a gorgeous Cocobolo OO with an Adirondack top, unique 24.9 inch scale length for ease of playability, slightly deeper body for added bass and volume, hot hide glue with Adirondack Spruce, scalloped bracing and a distinctive herringbone purfling and ivoroid rosette. This instrument is designed for the excruciatingly accurate and sophisticated techniques of the most demanding jazz fingerstylist.
