Long an honored presence in the Santa Cruz collection, the 1930's inspired H Model joined the catalog in 1977 during the formative years of the company. This was a challenging era to introduce a non-Dreadnought, non-12-fret guitar. Opting to be favored by natural selection, SCGC presented the now standard 14 frets to the body configuration to an audience that valued the additional 2-fret access on such a classic, vintage body.
Most players are astonished when they play the Santa Cruz H for the first time. Its volume is startling for a small-bodied guitar. The body's depth allows for a much larger presence than would be expected in an instrument of its size. The guitar's balanced hand voicing gives the H a precise response at every fretboard position. This model is highly recommended for those who prefer the sweetness and ease of playing a small guitar but require more comfort and volume.

I played a Santa Cruz H Model a couple of years ago and was hugely impressed with it. The small size gives it a balance and sweetness of tone not often found in larger guitars, and the dreadnought depth gives it a lot of punch and presence. Fit and finish were superb, as was CME's service. I'm one happy guitar player.
