Santa Cruz H 13 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Sunburst Finish
The Santa Cruz H13, their interpreted adaptation of Gibson's 1937 Nick Lucas, has always been one of our most popular shop models. Despite its small appearance, the Santa Cruz H13 employs a body depth approaching that of a much larger dreadnought-sized guitar, producing superb volume and bass support to bolster its rich tone. With its player-driven design that has 13 frets clear of the body, plus special soundhole and bridge locations, the H-13 capitalizes upon the best attributes of a 12-fret's resonance and a 14-fret's access. The body fits perfectly in your hands, inspiring gorgeous strumming sounds or intricate finger-picked passages.
The bracing pattern is unique to this model, utilizing a hybrid pattern that combines both scalloped and tapered braces. Built upon the standard tone woods of an H-13, it is extremely versatile. The combination of Mahogany and Sitka brings clarity and balance. Sitka is softer than Adirondack spruce which makes it perfect for players that find Adirondack a tad too stiff to accommodate fingerpicking but still want to strum with some authority.
