Santa Cruz Firefly - Cedar/East Indian Rosewood (2021)
This wonderful Santa Firefly is less than a year old, and plays like its brand new. It has one of the prettiest sunbursts that you will ever see, on top of a great set of cedar. The East Indian rosewood on the back and sides is also a beautiful set. This is a guitar which seems to cheat physics! Despite its small size, it puts out plenty of volume and has a gorgeous tone. Of note - this guitar had a slight center seam separation which was repaired in the Santa Cruz Guitar Company shop with a cleat - it is now perfectly stable and the separation is not at all visible.
Here is Santa Cruz's description of the Firefly:
Santa Cruz is thoroughly represented in television, film and top 40 hits of most genres by first call session aces. The celebrity front man usually sports an instrument on stage that is supplied by the brand with the biggest artist relations budget. But when it comes to their recordings, only the best guitar and player will do. Santa Cruz has provided the top studio professionals with style specific customizations for decades. The FireFly concept: Current technology has allowed artists to lay down tracks from remote locations creating a need for a sophisticated guitar that travels well and still delivers a professional performance. Some impartial observations from Guitar Player Magazine: “I’ve never reviewed a guitar that caused so many people to utter some variation on the phrase, “This might be the best guitar I’ve played in my life.” “This isn’t just the best small bodied guitar that I’ve played in years – this is one of the best guitars I’ve ever played period.” “The SCGC FireFly is a truly inspirational composing guitar.”
