Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Wave” was the title track of his fifth album, released in 1967. Mimi Fox summons the spirits of several jazz guitarists in her rendition on this 2011 Santa Cruz Firefly parlor guitar, one of 27 instruments offered in the Acoustic Guitar Auction that begins May 13, 2021.
The small-bodied Firefly was introduced by Santa Cruz in 2007; this is number 146, with the optional sunburst finish. This is a thoroughly modern reimagining of the 19th century parlor guitar; only the 24" scale length is retained. You'll find design elements echoing the great Martin and Gibson guitars of the 20th century, melded into a unique and hypnotically playable instrument.
