The 00-Skye model guitar was designed by Eric Skye and Richard Hoover as the Ferrari of fingerstyle guitars in classic pre-war package. It is ultimate in projection, responsiveness, complexity, and balance of tone. The guitar features master grade Adirondack spruce and Cocobolo rosewood. A twelve-fret 00 sized guitar with slightly deeper body and wider neck. Custom string spacing, scale length, and neck profile make for maximum playability.

Rest of Gear

In addition to the Santa Cruz 00-Skye, Eric uses Santa Cruz Guitar Company strings. He plays with Alaska fingerpicks, and a Fred Kelly extra-heavy thumb pick. When flatpicking, Eric uses a three-cornered, 1.5mm TAD60 by Blue Chip. His capos are made by Phil Elliott. For amplification Skye uses an AKG 214 large diaphragm condenser.  The sneakers are Pumas.
