Hold – Santa Cruz The Vault H13 – Purple San Lorenzo Sinker Redwood & Ancient Kauri/NAMM Instrument

Serial Number: 1854
Weight: 4 lbs 2 oz
This Santa Cruz Vault Series release we are thrilled to feature is the stop-in-your-tracks gorgeous H/13 model, a favorite design of many in the Santa Cruz workshop – including Maestro, Hoover, himself.
On top we debut an incredibly unique piece of Sinker Redwood from the San Lorenzo River that opens in the Santa Cruz Mountains and empties south of the boardwalk where the Monterey Bay meets the Pacific Ocean. After a wicked storm in the early 2000s, an old-growth Redwood log was unearthed from the muddy banks of the San Lorenzo and recovered on the beach by a master sawyer from Bonny Doon. This particular piece, with an unmistakably purple hue down the center, features stunning medullary rays that glitter and photos can only come so close to doing this piece justice.
Paired with a back and side set of Ancient Kauri reserved for Richard Hoover’s future discretion only – a piece among the most stunning of deeply flamed and rich amber colored options.
Additional specs on this majestic example of artistry include Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue, body, fingerboard and peghead binding in a 45 Style with Snakewood and Gold Awabi shell purfle, Gold Awabi back strip, Snakewood tail wedge with Gold Awabi shell purfle, Gold Awabi shell rosette and top border, solid square peghead, Ancient Kauri peghead overlay, Rococo Vault 14K gold peghead inlay with Ruby Window and Santa Cruz script logo in Gold Awabi shell, Rococo Vault 14K gold pattern and Gold Awabi shell side dot fingerboard inlay, Rococo scrimshaw heel cap, engraved gold Waverly tuners, Snakewood bridge, EVO Gold fretwire, Rococo Vault 14K gold with Gold Awabi shell inlay in bridge feet, Bone bridge and end pins, LR Baggs HiFi pickup installed.
