      Last night I had the pleasure of watching Catfish Keith perform at an out door event on a beautiful summers night. He played several different guitars but the standout by far was the Santa Cruz Catfish Keith Special. An all mahogany single 0 guitar. I don’t have much experience with single 0 guitars and of coarse I had my thoughts about them. This is the best sounding acoustic guitar from a stage I have ever heard, period. The snap and tone from the low E string would put any dreadnought to shame. It has a clarity and has a thick well balanced tone across the spectrum. Keith favors playing some on the high e string and his all hog guitar served up some sweet and thick e string tone. I fell in love with the guitar there is no doubt. And as always Catfish put on a great entertaining show fingerpicking those blues.
