This gorgeous Santa Cruz H Model with Sinker Redwood over Indian Rosewood has just arrived at Heartbreaker Guitars! It features Adirondack bracing with Hide Glue creating endless sustain and incredible tone. The H Model is one of Richard Hoover's most popular body styles.
Long an honored presence in the Santa Cruz collection, the 1930’s inspired H Model joined the Santa Cruz catalog in 1977 during the formative years of the company. This was a challenging era to introduce a non-Dreadnought, non-12-fret guitar. Opting to be favored by natural selection, SCGC presented the now standard 14 frets to the body configuration to an audience that valued the additional 2-fret access on such a classic, vintage body.
Most players are astonished when they play the Santa Cruz H for the first time. Its volume is startling for a small-bodied guitar. The body’s depth allows for a much larger presence than would be expected in an instrument of its size. The guitar’s balanced hand voicing gives the H a precise response at every fretboard position. This model is highly recommended for those who prefer the sweetness and ease of playing a small guitar but require more comfort and volume.
