    Hi to old friends and to those joining the new forum.

    I am pleased to answer tech, history and procedural questions here. I will always stick to established science rather than make things up and if I feel the need to offer an opinion I will warn you first. Importantly; if I don’t know the answer, I will say so and then endeavor to find out.

    What I don’t know is anything about the rules of this forum or how it works. The Santa Cruz Players Forum is independent of Santa Cruz Guitar Co. so please direct those questions to the forum moderator.

    I look forward to being at your service, thank you!

    All the best,                                                                                         Richard Hoover                                                                                    Santa Cruz Guitar Co.

    Hi Richard. How did you settle on the bracing for the H13. When you first conceived of the new model, did you look at vintage guitars as a starting point – or simply trial and error. It’s a favorite for my fingers & it’s always on hand.
