What To Know
This Santa Cruz 00 Eric Skye was completed in December 2016, and was customized with a cutaway, African Blackwood back & sides, and an old-growth Adirondack Spruce top. While the cutaway may fall into the realm of luxury item for most people, the tonewood upgrades herein are substantial by anyone's measure. African Blackwood (in place of the standard-for-this-model Cocobolo) imparts stiffness and clarity, as does the old-growth Adirondack top. Compared to the standard iteration of this model, this particular 00 Eric Skye has a crisper, more articulate voice; and it seems limitless in terms of its headroom under a flatpick.
The guitar remains in very good overall condition. There are standard signs of playwear -- some minor scratching on the pickguard, and some light abrasions from shirt buttons on the back -- but it presents very cleanly in hand. The back of the neck has glossed up from its original satin finish (expected with use), but feels very broken-in and smooth. Priced with its original Ameritage hard case.
Please note: used instruments are, well, used. We pride ourselves on thoroughly vetting, and carefully photographing, each pre-owned instrument we sell, but many of them carry subtle signs of handling that can escape even the most discerning eye.
