1998 Santa Cruz F Custom German Spruce and Indian Rosewood

Santa Cruz' ability to control the EQ of the F is the secret to avoiding boominess, while maintaining impressive acoustic volume and giving an articulate voice to fingerstyle playing and open tunings. The Santa Cruz F Model is a favorite of performing songwriters. Its classic shape and design make it a popular choice for 12 string, cutaway, custom finish and inlay options.

Some SCGC models are designed for specific genres like bluegrass, fingerstyle or rhythm. The F Model’s intent is versatility. Recording, performing and composing with picks or nails on the same instrument is a necessity for many of us. When your repertoire also demands full dynamics from subtle to bold, you needn’t settle nor compromise on your presentation if you have the proper tool.

Built with a German Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. The tone is rich and clear with minimal effort. Smooth highs make for a very sweet sound that is balanced with a strong, clear low end that is never boomy.

The Indian Rosewood back and sides provides a deep, extended low end when compared to mahogany and certainly shines when combined with Santa Cruz's masterfully tuned Italian Spruce top. This particular set of Indian Rosewood is not only beautiful, it provides a perfect tone and volume for all styles of play. The low end is clear, distinct and incredibly powerful, without sacrificing the strong high end.

Like most all Santa Cruz, this guitar has more than ample volume and presence. This Custom F is a natural strummer, with clear chords that sound remarkably balanced with all the power you could ever hope for.

This 1998 Santa Cruz F Custom German Spruce and Indian Rosewood is in excellent condition with some finish seperation around the bridge, on the sides and top and one substantial scratch on the back. We have attempted to capture the wear in the detailed photos. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
