Tacoma and Windham Hill labels provided the showcase for these new and sophisticated steel string explorers who were attempting to express themselves on booming dreadnoughts. Will Ackerman, Robbie Basho, Daniel Hecht, Duck Baker and Michael Hedges all looked to SCGC for the teams expertise in achieving custom tone to make an instrument with the perfect voice for this new style. With input from the pros, the tiny SCGC team at the time, which included Jeff Traugott, Michael Hornick and Steve Palazzo, stepped up to the challenge with this concept: design and build a specialty fingerstyle instrument that responds with immediacy and volume to the minimized energy imparted from fingertips and the reduced tension of many open tunings. Give it a contemporary aesthetic of simple elegance and complexity of tone that the player can not outgrow. Twenty-five years and numerous awards and accolades later, The Fretboard Journal credits the Santa Cruz FS as the inspiration for the guitar designs of some of the brightest lights in contemporary lutherie and a strong influence on major manufacturers. The FS is a truly sophisticated instrument that will allow the best possible presentation of your fingerstyle technique.Body Wood Type Indian RosewoodBack Stripe Brazilian RosewoodBinding Brazilian RosewoodTop Wood Type CedarRosette Blue Purfle ComboPurfling Blue Purfle ComboBracing/Voicing TaperedOther CutawayNeck Peghead Solid, FS StylePeghead Binding NoneOverlay Material Brazilian RosewoodHeadstock Inlay SCGC MiniWidth at Nut 1-13/16 Neck Shape Round, CutawayFingerboard Side Dots 2mm MOPInlay NoneWidth at 14th Fret 2-3/16Binding BlackScale Length 25.375Finish Top ClearBack & Sides Clear/BuffedNeck Clear/BuffedSetup Pickguard NoneTuners/gears 510 Delta Gotoh Gold w/Ebony Button
