Santa Cruz’s take on the Nick Lucas depression era 13 fret guitar. This custom H13 features all Honduran Mahogany body with full body dark burst gloss finish, Ivoroid body bindings and cowboy rope top purflings and rosette. the H13 gives an extra fret access up the neck while positioning the bridge in the ‘sweet spot’ on the top.
SCGC’s concept was to achieve power beyond what would be expected in a small-bodied guitar. Two fundamental lutherie tricks make this possible: a longer string length (more downward pressure at the saddle) and more air space via a deeper body (increased volume and bass response). To place the bridge in the optimal position for power and maintain the longer string length, the neck needs to join the body at the 13th fret. This is a gorgeous classic with power and presence expected from a much larger instrument. Perfect for aggressive fingerstyle blues and vocal accompaniment, the H-13 feels really sweet to hold.
