The Santa Cruz 00-Skye model is a 00 size guitar with a deeper body and short scale configuration built with Cocobolo back and sides. We customized this with an Italian Spruce top, giving it a slightly more broken in feel while not retaining the crisp, clear bell like qualities and forward punch it is known for. This guitar just plays itself in your hands. Amazing tone and dynamic grange.
Portland based jazz guitarist Eric Skye was named by 20th Century Guitar Magazine as “one of the best rising stars of the American acoustic jazz scene.” This hardworking instrumentalist has gained a loyal following both as a dramatic and expressive live performer and an in-demand acoustic guitar instructor both in Oregon and in the online music community. He has been featured in magazines such as Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Jazziz and Jazz Improv, and his music can be heard on NPR. To match his distinct personality and playing style, Eric and Richard collectively dreamed up the 00-Skye. A gorgeous Cocobolo 00, unique 24.9 inch scale length for ease of playability, slightly deeper body for added bass and volume, hot hide glue with Adirondack Spruce, scalloped bracing and a distinctive herringbone purfling and ivoroid rosette. This instrument is designed for the excruciatingly accurate and sophisticated techniques of the most demanding jazz fingerstylist.
