I recently purchased my first SCGC instrument from Sylvan in Santa Cruz. It’s intended to be handed down to my daughter. The whole process was an adventure, which I’ve documented in this video on youtube. Hope you enjoy:
No apologies for your playing which is as articulate, sweetly sensitive and beautifully played as is your wonderful story documenting your Santa Cruz acquisition. Treasure each day as you watch your beautiful children grow and learn to appreciate the gifts of music and the love for them that you are embracing.

Life is a journey…not a guided tour,
The Bay,The Gulf Stream , The Open Ocean are particular about who they share their secrets with.
Thanks for the compliments folks. I had to record each of these tunes at least twice before I could get a clean cut. This guitar is fantastic, but not forgiving. Typical of a new Adi/Mahogany guitar, I’m told.
Walter, my second child is also named Walter – for him I’m thinking a rosewood dread will be in order. We shall see.
