Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo - Adirondack Spruce/Mahogany (NEW)
This Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo, customized with an Adirondack spruce top and with Adirondack bracing attached with hot hide glue, is a wonderful slope shouldered dreadnought. Equally adept at strumming as it is at fingerstyle work, this guitar does not lack in volume or bass. But true to Santa Cruz guitars, it is wonderfully balanced, with sweet trebles and easy playability. This would make for a perfect performing instrument!
Here is Santa Cruz's description of this model:
The Advanced Jumbo, J-45 and the iconic early 60’s Epiphone Texan were the coolest accessories that an aspiring cowboy singer could shoot for. Each one of these guitars was a favorite of several of SCGC’s veteran luthiers. As it is our style to interpret rather than copy, the Vintage Jumbo Model combines the essence of coolness possessed by its forbearers with built-in improvements from SCGC’s decades of lutherie.
The VJ’s Sitka Spruce top is braced and voiced for volume and the body is built with premium Mahogany for clarity of tone. The balance favors the bass to the degree found in the originals, not to the excess found in many from the golden era of the square-shouldered brand. What this really pretty face has over its predecessors is SCGC’s hallmark complexity of overtones, sustain and power. Look your best. Wear this guitar!
The Vintage Jumbo is the ideal Blues guitar. Inspired by the classic round-shouldered dreadnoughts of the 1940’s, we infused it with the characteristic Santa Cruz volume, balance and complexity to create a guitar that can cover a lot of different styles. The VJ is dripping with the kind of deep, rich bass and sweet trebles that really shine in chord-oriented work. You won’t find this one coming up short when you call on it for more!
