It's here and it's simply drop dead gorgeous! The Santa Cruz Otis Taylor Chicago is a little cannon! With all Mahogany construction, this guitar is rich, articulate, resonant and loud! With a deep body, it creates complex, deep lows, but at the same time generates pristine highs and growling mids. Fingerstlye or flat picking, this guitar can deliver any style you throw at it!
The Otis Taylor Signature Model has been a mainstay in the SCGC collection for years. Otis worked with Richard to create a new ‘Chicago’ variation on the model for 2014 that would perfectly project his trance blues style, an all-Mahogany, 13-fret, deep body H reminiscent of our 1929 series, but with backlit tortoise bindings, custom finish and OT Chicago logo in mother of pearl. As always, no need for frets past the 14th on this growling blues guitar with depth and bite.
