Offered is this fabulous Santa Cruz 42 style 000-12 Fret. Made in 2019 this lightly played beauty could likely pass for new.​

The SCGC 000-12 Fret has a slightly elongated OM-sized body. This custom guitar has an upgraded European Spruce top with back and sides made of straight grained East Indian Rosewood. This example was constructed with hot hide glue and the top utilizes upgraded Adirondcack Spruce scalloped bracing. It has an upgraded Abalone rosette and Abalone top trim along with a zipper style backstrip. The It has a string scale of 25.375" and of course the neck joins the body at the 12th fret. The Mahogany neck has a very soft V shape with depth measurements of .85" at the 1st fret increasing to .98" at the 9th. It has a lovely Ebony fretboard which is bound in ivoroid with Abalone diamond and square inlays and a 1.75" bone nut. The headstock is also bound in ivoroid, with an Ebony overlay and SCGC MOP inlay. It has a classic Ebony belly bridge with 2-3/16" string spacing. The tuners are nickel Waverlys with ivoroid buttons. Lightly constructed, this beauty weighs just 3 pounds, 15 ounces!

While beautiful to look at, I'm a big fan of the tone of a well-made 12-fret and this guitar delivers big time. The voice of this guitar is full and well-balanced and there is something about the geometry of a 12-fret that just works well for many players. The neck on this guitar feels nice and sleek and it is very easy to play. It is setup perfectly, with 9th fret string heights of 6/64" on the low E side and 4/64" on the high E side. Please check out the brief sound sample provided to hear this lovely guitar.

This guitar is in near mint condition, with virtually no flaws of any significance and the frets are flawless. It comes in it's original SCGC / Ameritage case, also in near new condition.

A new example of this model would cost you nearly $8K but this lovely piece can be had for thousands less. If you've been considering the purchase of an 000-12 fret instrument, I highly recommend this marvelous and near new Santa Cruz! A great guitar at a terrific price.
