Description

Santa Cruz's FireFly is quite simply the best-playing and best-sounding comfort-sized acoustic that we have ever played. In fact, it's one of the best acoustics that's come through Cream City Music, period. With this FireFly's redwood top, Indian Rosewood back/sides, and sunburst finish, you get some absolutely gorgeous figuring, for a warm aesthetic that matches its tone. The Redwood top lends itself well to fingerstyle playing, dishing out clear high-end sparkle and crisp upper harmonic content. Think of it as a happy medium between cedar and spruce. The FireFly also has plenty of punch thanks to its Indian Rosewood back/sides and scalloped bracing, so you can just as easily flatpick. This tonal versatility makes it a valuable asset to have as a songwriter, with its portability making it easy to flesh out your ideas whenever inspiration strikes. Due to the stellar attention to detail and craftsmanship that made Santa Cruz Guitar Company one of the most respected names in acoustic guitar building, it’s no surprise that the FireFly lives up to and exceeds expectations, both as a vessel for inspiration and as a comfort-sized acoustic.

*This Firefly had its top repaired by Cream City Music's master luthier, Ron Jones. It sustained a split on the top (see photos), but has been fully repaired.*
