Santa Cruz dreadnought, made in Santa Cruz, California, USA, 1997, serial number D-2003. Dreadnought with Sitka spruce top and Honduran mahogany back and sides. Thin C-shaped mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard and 1-11/16"-wide nut. Body, neck, and headstock bound with ivoroid.

Very good condition. Est. $2,200–$3,000

With classic mahogany dreadnought specs and a high-quality build from a pioneering guitar maker, this mid-’90s Santa Cruz dreadnought sounds like you’d expect. The slim, modern neck shape feels fast, and the binding gives it a deluxe look. This guitar shows some honest, but very minor, play wear but was well cared-for, so it is in very good condition. The Brazilian rosewood headstock face adds an especially lovely look to the guitar.
