Folks, you don't even need to play it... just look at it! It's strikingly beautiful. So hang it on your wall and stare at it. If you get the notion, strum a few chords and listen to the angelic tone that may change the way you play guitar. Richard Hoover is one of the best luthiers on the planet. This guitar shows why.
Santa Cruz Guitar Company is thrilled to debut The Catfish Special, a custom 1929 O model built for our friend and world renowned blues musician, Catfish Keith. After building a custom, all Mahogany O for Catfish a few years back, fans around the world kept asking for more information on this ‘little guitar with the giant voice.’ Following Catfish’s riveting performance at our 40th anniversary party and the reaction it received, it was obvious that a signature model version of this customized 1929 O would be a welcome addition to our catalog. We are proud to present The Catfish Special!
A ‘Professional’ version of this model is also available, offering the same Catfish peghead inlay and custom bubble fingerboard inlays as found on Catfish Keith’s personal guitar. Please inquire for details.
