I had the absolute pleasure of working on some spectacular acoustic guitars over the last week from the incredibly nice ministers of One Church & Forest Lake Church. I am not sure what was better, getting to work on and play their guitars or just talk to them. Great guys.
I know I probably should not mention church and porn in the same sentence, but once you see the guitars these guys brought in, I think you will understand. How about I just mention them . . . Lowden, Martin 000-28HD, Santa Cruz . . . Yeah you read that right.
I am going to make a few separate posts but this one is about Justin's Santa Cruz. I am going to say it is the within the top 5 acoustics I have ever played or heard in my life. I was actually so impressed I am in the hunt for one of my own. Just spectacular.
I had the pleasure of installing a LR Baggs Anthem, strap button and a setting this one up for Florida - which is significantly different that the set up it had from California.
The Anthem proved quite challenging on this guitar as the saddle slot is very thin. I had to route the bridge to make room for the Piezo. No matter how many times you do it, still nerve racking when you are working on a 5K guitar.
