The smallest guitar to ever come out of the Santa Cruz Guitar Company’s shop…
I was pumped to get the chance to review the Santa Cruz Firefly guitar just last week, and I have to say I am impressed.
The motivation behind the design of the guitar was to pack the tonal quality, comfort, and luxury of a beautifully crafted small bench guitar into a small, travel-worthy package. I have to say it is a success, the guitar has a focused voice, wonderful depth of tone, and an overall comfort that is rare in a travel guitar. Guitars of this size have a tendency to bounce around when trying to play them, but this one stayed put, I believe due to the body shape… namely the way the waist of the guitar is cut in.
This is a guitar that should definitely be on your list to at least try, and certainly consider if you want to bring an artisan guitar on your travels.
