2005 Santa Cruz D PW with Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood

The Santa Cruz D Pre-War DPW is a solid wood dreadnought-sized guitar designed to be able to provide the sophisticated tone and playability SCGC has become famous for at a price below anything available from SCGC for many years. This guitar incorporates all of Santa Cruz's extensive experience in making acoustic guitars, and puts it to work in an elegant but simpler format.

The PW refers to pre-war, or advanced X bracing. The bracing style gives the guitar an incredible presence and bass response yet retains a good balance with strong mid-range and bright powerful treble response. The advanced X bracing also makes the guitar very responsive for fingerstyle playing as well as powerful rhythm playing.

This instrument has the standard Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood on the back, sides and peghead overlay. The Indian Rosewood back and sides produces a tone that is clear and powerful.

The tone of this Santa Cruz D PW is very round and contains the Santa Cruz string balance we have grown to love. Lead notes are full and thick on every string, all the way up and down the neck. The volume this guitar is capable of puts many dreadnoughts to shame and will be a monster in jam sessions with other stringed instruments. The Sitka Spruce top keeps the guitar very responsive and versatile with lush low end and silky smooth highs in a highly responsive and playable dreadnought.

This 2005 Santa Cruz D PW with Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood is in excellent condition. It has a few minor scratches and dents to the pick-guard, top and back, neck and sides however, none of the scratches are through the finish and can be seen in the detailed images below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
