The 1930’s Advanced Jumbo, J-45 and the iconic early 60’s Epiphone Texan lent their considerable retro cool to the origins of Santa Cruz’s Vintage Southerner Model. Each one of these guitars was a favorite of several of SCGC’s veteran luthiers and so inspired this regal compliment to the SCGC VJ Model. The must have feature of this SCGC VS is the shorter, 24-3/4 inch scale length. It is so yielding to the touch that fretting and reach are a pleasure. The scale puts the bridge in the optimal position to produce the comforting, growling presence of an old blues recording. The VS will respond with considerably more refined quality than the oldies, while inspiring room to grow throughout your musical career. This beautiful guitar features mahogany back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, a custom Red Cherry finish, a 1 11/16″ nut, standard double tapered Adirondack X bracing with hot hide glue and Nickel Waverly tuners with Ivoroid buttons.
