Santa Cruz Guitars are widley acclaimed as amongst the best playing and most versatile sounding acoustics in the world. The Santa Cruz Style 1 is simply breathtaking, a richly resonant guitar that has a vibrant sound throughout the entire spectrum and feels comfortable and accesible to play. The aesthetic is also exceptional, with its heavenly carved neck and attractive cedar finish, making this item one of our most desirable collector’s pieces.

To properly introduce the Santa Cruz Style 1, it is necessary to echo the historic positioning of the SCGC PJ guitar. The parlor-style body was the pinnacle of the art of guitar making up until the late 19th century. This was the optimal size for tonal perfection. The reason guitars got bigger was to make them louder. With amplification and modern recording techniques, we can once again embrace sound quality over sound quantity.

The original body shapes of the fledgling C.F. Martin & Co. included the Size 1, a relatively large guitar for the era. Fast-forward to the new millennium where this design is very well suited for contemporary fingerstyle techniques. Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s interpretation of this wonderfully sized instrument is in response to players’ demands for this traditionally sweet sounding guitar. SCGC’s ability to achieve surprising volume and presence in a smaller-bodied instrument gives the Style 1 a solid position in the contemporary guitarist’s repertoire.
