 Santa Cruz VJ Vintage Jumbo with Adirondack Bracing and Hot Hide Glue

The Advanced Jumbo, J-45 and the iconic early 60's Epiphone Texan were the coolest accessories that an aspiring cowboy singer could shoot for. Each one of these guitars was a favorite of several of SCGC's veteran luthiers. As it is their style to interpret rather than copy, the Vintage Jumbo Model combines the essence of coolness possessed by its forbearers with built-in improvements from SCGC's decades of lutherie.

The Vintage Jumbo is the ideal Blues guitar. Inspired by the classic round-shouldered dreadnoughts of the 1940's, we infused it with the characteristic Santa Cruz volume, balance and complexity to create a guitar that can cover a lot of different styles. The VJ is dripping with the kind of deep, rich bass and sweet trebles that really shine in chord-oriented work. You won't find this one coming up short when you call on it for more!

The VJ's Sitka Spruce top is braced with custom Adirondack and voiced for volume. The body is built with premium Mahogany for clarity of tone. The balance favors the bass to the degree found in the originals, not to the excess found in many from the golden era of the square-shouldered brand. What this really pretty face has over its predecessors is SCGC's hallmark complexity of overtones, sustain and power.

This Custom Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo also features Hot Hide Glue Construction with Adirondack Spruce bracing. Hide Glue was the original glue used on the early Martin guitars but has been phased out by many luthiers due to the added time it takes to work with... not to mention it is very messy!  Hot Hide glue sets up like glass, offering a more immediate and efficient transfer of energy throughout the top, making the overall guitar more responsive with a clarity of tone that is unmatched.

This VJ's Adirondack Spruce top is braced and voiced for volume and the body is built with premium Brazilian Rosewood. Brazilian Rosewood has been Highly desirable for centuries due to its classic beauty and tone. This is the good stuff from Santa Cruz! Brazilian imparts a rich, warm tone to the guitar, slightly towards the brighter end of the tonal spectrum when compared to Indian Rosewood. It is an excellent choice for aesthetic and secure financial value based on historical trends. It is guaranteed to maximize the thrill of the acquisition! The balance favors the bass to the degree found in the originals, not to the excess found in many from the golden era. What this really pretty face has over its predecessors is SCGC's hallmark complexity of overtones, sustain and power.

The gorgeous Adirondack top is complemented by a dark vintage sunburst, very reminiscent of the originals found on the period correct Slope shoulder dreads.

This 2004 Santa Cruz VJ - Brazilian is in excellent condition. The original tuners have upgraded to Waverly Gold tuners. With only a few minor scratches to the pick-guard, top and back, this would be considered "Excellent plus". None of these scratches are through the finish and can be seen in the close up images below. Additionally, there is a slight outline of the previous tuners on the headstock. Includes a Calton Hardshell Case.
