Santa Cruz Acoustic Guitars - 1996 Vintage Artist

$2,900.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This used Santa Cruz Vintage Artist from 1996 is quite the find. Here in Mint condition, it's one of those guitars that was been tucked away under a bed, unplayed for years, and hoped to be rediscovered. Well, here it is, and it's a genuinely amazing dreadnought that deserves to be out and played. Featuring a Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides, it has a fantastic voice, and was modeled to combine the most desirable traits of pre-war D-18s into one stunning package. A really great-sounding guitar, it's also loaded with plenty of high-end appointments, including Ivoroid binding, a tortoiseshell pickguard, Herringbone top trim, an Ivoroid rosette, and a zipper-style backstrip. This Santa Cruz Vintage Artist is an absolutely incredible dreadnought - and one you probably won't see in this condition at 20 years old again. Includes an AVS hardshell case.
