  • Santa Cruz Guitar Company H13 Cedar / Walnut #1861


    SCGC’s concept for the H13 is to achieve power beyond what would be expected in a small bodied guitar. Two fundamental lutherie tricks make this possible: a longer string length adding more downward pressure at the saddle, and optimizing volume and bass response via a deeper body. To place the bridge in the optimal position for power and maintain the longer string length, the neck joins the body at the 13th fret.

    The historical precedent for this classic shape was the ‘Nick Lucas Special’ from the 1920’s and ’30’s, the one Bob Dylan holds in early photos. The “H” designation is an acknowledgment to the guardian of the lore of all things vintage and stringed, Maestro Paul Hostetter, who commissioned SCGC to build the prototype in 1978.

    This H13 has been customized with the gorgeous combination of Cedar over Walnut, combining Cedar's responsive, warm clarity with Walnut's present midrange and concentration of overtones. The H13's build combined with these tonewoods forms a sleek, versatile instrument with heaps of personality fit for fingerstyle and flatpicking.
