Here's a very recent version of one of SCGC's original guitars, as their F model came way before the first Santa Cruz OM, and of course eons before all the smaller models. The F is the classic 16 inch jumbo, and was based on an Epiphone flattop model, but of course modified for fingerstyle players. The neck shape is very consistent and the neck width is 1 3/4" at the nut and 2 1/8" at the 14th fret, which facilitates playing chord positions up and down the neck, especially with open tunings. This example has an Italian spruce top with Adirondack spruce braces, and the top bracing was all done with hot animal hide glue. There are some slight nicks and dings to the finish on the top, mostly in the area that would be covered with a pickguard, but very little signs of wear anywhere else. The pickguard, which is faux tortoiseshell celluloid, was never installed and is in the case (a few finish nicks in the upper treble side bout would still show but the pickguard would cover most of them). This finish wear is all very slight, you have to look to find it. Great sound, very balanced and even up and down the neck.
