What would be the difference between a SCGC H13 and the Otis Taylor?
Besides the 14 fret only...

They're both 13 frets. There are various detail differences, which add up. The H13 is a remake of the Gibson 1930-ish Nick Lucas, with a hog back and sides and sitka top -- it has a 1.75 nut and slothead stock. The Otis Taylor I think was based on the H13 originally. Its stock major differences are rosewood back &a sides, and a 1.625" nut with flat headstock. I'm sure there are other details like the H13 comes standard with burst finish vs the Otis natural something.

The thing with SCGC is most guitars are customized in some way, but the seller said it's stock, so check out the web pages:

Another beneficial build quality is the Adirondack spruce braces with hot hide glue.

Thanks.
My reference to "14 frets only" alluded to the total of 14 frets on the OT.
I understand the 13fret position.

My curiosity stems from my enjoying my H13 with Italian/Braz as well as a couple other H13's in the past.

My first impression is the OT has a more immediate power/volume/projection from the attack . More overtone rich. Maybe not as much of an airy wash compared to the H13 spruce/Mahogany. This tone talk is always tough choosing the correct adjectives.. More punch to the tone And man oh the ruby tomato red color!

There you go. We've got a second on punchy to describe the OT.
Another term I like to describe a strong fill the room with sound is internal reverb.

You see very few of these Santa Cruz OT signature model available on the used market. Looking to sell or might consider a partial trade plus min $2,000 towards a deal.
