2009 Santa Cruz Bob Brozman Baritone ID-6054
2009 Santa Cruz Bob Brozman Baritone
A collaboration between world musician Bob Brozman and SCGC's Richard Hoover, this unique guitar combines design elements and tone woods for unrivaled volume, tone and sustain. The Bob Brozman Baritone model features a 27-inch neck scale built to be tuned down two or three half steps, a sloped-shoulder dreadnought with 12 frets to the body, contributing to a rich and powerful voice. If your playing styles include Blues, Hawaiian slack-key or any open-tuning fingerstyle, this guitar is for you! - powerful, indeed! This custom 2009 Santa Cruz Bob Brozman Baritone was created in a very special Sycamore tone wood (Plantanus racemosa), native to California. It offers a stunning visual of leopard patterned colors, in holographic changes beneath the nitrocellulose finish. Beauty aside - as a tone wood, at first blush Sycamore seems to develop that big, open woody fundamental sound we are accustomed to hearing from master grade Mahogany... And more! It has the resonance & complexity of Rosewood, a full bottom-end bass response - yet with more clarity. Obviously pairing this tone wood with a German Spruce top for quicker string attack, together with the baritone scale of this model BBB is simply astounding. It has a piano like quality, beyond any other baritone we have played. Tuned 'C' to 'C' - this is an ideal addition to any players collection.
This 2009 Santa Cruz Bob Brozman Baritone is in excellent condition. Hard to distinguish used from new this guitar does have a few minor scratches and a couple dings on the top and back as seen in the photographs below. There is also an aftermarket Dalmatian pickguard that has been professionally installed.
