Santa Cruz OO-Skye
 
Eric Skye demonstrates his 00-size Santa Cruz signature model.
February 1, 2018

Portland, Oregon-based guitarist Eric Skye is best known for his fingerstyle jazz arrangements. His most recent CD, A Different Kind of Blue, re-creates Miles Davis’ classic album Kind of Blue in a solo acoustic guitar context. In this video, recorded for his segment in Peghead Nation’s Advanced Fingerstyle Workshop, Eric plays his arrangement of “All Blues,” and demonstrates and discusses his OO-Skye signature model, built by the Santa Cruz Guitar Co. (santacruzguitar.com). Based on a 12-fret 00-design, the guitar is ⅛-inch deeper than standard, has a 24.9-inch scale, and is built with cocobolo back and sides. While standard OO-Skye’s are constructed with an Adirondack spruce top, the guitar in this video has an Italian spruce top with heavy bearclaw figure. Eric also talks about his aLaska fingerpicks, Fred Kelly thumbpick, D’Addario strings, Elliott capo, and K&K pickups.

To see Eric teach his tune “Happy Cake,” enroll in Peghead Nation’s Advanced Fingerstyle Workshop today. ericskye.com
