Santa Cruz The Catfish Special O

Availability: In stock



Looky! A Santa Cruz The Catfish Special O !

In 2018, Santa Cruz Guitar Company was thrilled to debut The Catfish Special, a custom 1929 O model built for our friend and world renowned blues musician, Catfish Keith.

After building a custom, all Mahogany O for Catfish a few years back, fans around the world kept asking for more information on this ‘little guitar with the giant voice.’

Following Catfish’s riveting performance at their 40th-anniversary party and the reaction it received, it was obvious that a signature model version of this customized 1929 O would be a welcome addition to the Santa Cruz catalog. As was born The Catfish Special!

When we get these in - they don't stick long - these catfish swim fast!
