Offered is this superb Santa Cruz 000-12 Fret made in 2017 and in near mint condition.

The SCGC 000-12 Fret is a slightly elongated OM-sized body. This guitar has a select Sitka Spruce top with back and sides made of straight grained East Indian Rosewood. The top utilizes scalloped bracing. This example has an upgraded Abalone-trimmed rosette along with it's standard herringbone purfling and zipper style backstrip. The It has a string scale of 25.375" and of course the neck joins the body at the 12th. The Mahogany neck has a very soft V shape with depth measurements of .85" at the 1st fret increasing to .98" at the 9th on this one. It has a lovely Ebony fretboard which is bound in ivoroid with Abalone diamond and square inlays and a 1.75" bone nut. The headstock is also bound in ivoroid, with an Ebony overlay and SCGC MOP inlay. It has a classic Ebony belly bridge with 2-3/16" string spacing. The tuners are nickel Waverlys with ivoroid buttons. This is a very classy, but understated 000 to my eye!

I'm a big fan of the tone of a well-made 12-fret and this guitar delivers big time. The voice of this guitar is full and well-balanced and there is something about the geometry of a 12-fret that just works well for many players. The neck on this guitar feels nice and sleek and it is very easy to play. It is setup perfectly, with 9th fret sting heights of 6/64" on the low E side and 4/64" on the high E side. Please check out the brief sound sample provided to hear this lovely guitar.

This guita is in near mint condition, with just a few very light scuffs on the pickguard to distinguish it from new. The frets are flawless. It comes in it's original SCGC / Ameritage case, also in as new condition.

A new example of this model would cost you nearly $6K but this lovely piece can be had for quite a bit less. If you've been considering the purchase of an 000-12 fret instrument, I highly recommend this marvelous and near new Santa Cruz!
