  • Santa Cruz Happy Traum Signature Model HT/13 #1772


    It’s brand new, and it’s here at Heartbreaker! The Happy Traum Signature Model HT/13 from Santa Cruz is based on the H/13 model; the choice guitar of American folk guitarist, Happy Traum. The old-growth Redwood top and Mahogany back/sides give this model an incredible amount of sustain and resonance, making it a perfect choice for fingerstyle players.

    Happy Traum was taking full advantage of Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s custom shop capabilities long before it became their norm. His first Santa Cruz was a Cocobolo/Adirondack H/13 model with a custom neck and finish; years later he worked with Richard once again to design an all Mahogany OM with wood bindings, abalone appointments and custom inlay. When Richard proposed they collaborate on an official Happy Traum Signature Model Guitar, they combined the tonal, aesthetic and playability elements that Happy enjoyed in both custom builds to come up with a winning recipe, now forever known as the HT/13: Genuine Honduras Mahogany back/sides paired with salvaged, old growth Redwood and Adirondack bracing/hot hide glue in a small but deep bodied guitar delivers a bright, rich and clear tone with quick responsiveness, hearty low end and exceptional volume. The guitar is tastefully bound in ivoroid with abalone appointments and a custom top finish, rendering the HT/13 as stunning to behold as it is to play.
