Product Description

Take a twelve-fret slope-shoulder dread body, shrink it slightly and give it a 27" scale-length neck? You'd have the Santa Cruz baritone guitar developed with Bob Brozman for tone, volume & sustain. This one has Brazilian back & sides and an Adirondack spruce top. The Brazilian is the dark, old-growth wood we like to see. The Adirondack top is stellar, as well, extremely tight-grained, full of silk and bear-claw figure, with all of the wood (top & back & sides) coming from Steve Swan back in the day. The string spacing is 1-3/4" at the nut and 2-5/16" at the saddle. The strings necessary to drive such extensive real estate are these: The low B is .070; the high B a .016. With a comfortable, slightly flattened D-shape neck, the guitar is still easy to play, set up to perfection by us. Tonally, it sure has the volume and sustain it was designed for. But really? Single note runs have the intensity and warmth of a Gary Burton solo, without the vibrato. Grand piano-like? Of course. Or maybe cello-like: it has the grandeur of a string quartet reduced to a single instrument.
