Light and lively, this Santa Cruz Guitars version of the iconic slope-shoulder mahogany dreadnought will surprise you with how easy it is to play. Big short-scale guitars can lack power, but not this one. Since there's no sign it ever had a pickguard we're assuming it was ordered without one, but the correct 'guard would be easy to add and then there would be almost no signs of wear to the top at all (there are light scuffs to the finish but almost all are confined to where a pickguard would normally be). No cracks anywhere, only light fret wear, and a passive K & K pickup has been nicely installed. Note that while the shading on the back and sides is subtle, this is really a full body sunburst. Comes with the TKL case shown, part of the wrapping on the handle is loose but the handle is still secure.
