The events and causes that she lends her talents to share purpose with the values of Santa Cruz Guitar Company. Our 20 years of association is manifest in the SCGC instrument that bears her name. Sonia’s Model is a performing songwriter’s platform. Based on the versatile H model, it has an attention getting presence: loud and balanced with clean definition. Sophisticated tone with note separation when rhythmically strummed makes the difference between folksy accompaniment and a dynamic presence in performance.
