Spirit in the Skye

Eric Skye is one of the most revered figures in the world of acoustic jazz, and this 00-Skye from Santa Cruz Guitar Company was purpose-built to replicate his nuanced performances and expressive techniques. It has a 24.9" scale for easy, slinky playability along with a slighlty deeper body that produces more low-end and projects more powerfully than a typical 00. Its Adirondack spruce top gives it maximum articulation and headroom, and its gorgeous highly-figured cocobolo back and sides give it immense richness and harmonic depth. If you're a fingerstylist looking for a world-beater, don't miss this incredible instrument!

Condition Report

This incredible Eric Skye signature model from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company is in superb shape with a bit of light honest playwear throughout the finish. There is also an area of more moderate wear on the treble side of the top by the pickguard. Also, there are some small dings sprinkled throughout the finish, and some scratches on the front, top, and back of the peghead. But, all in all, none of these imperfections are particularly egregious--they're just what happens naturally when a guitar provides an addictive playing experience like this one. It comes with its original leather-bound Ameritage case, too.
