Santa Cruz Tony Rice - Adirondack Spruce/East Indian Rosewood (NEW)
Powerful, smooth, rich and elegant - that describes this fantastic Santa Cruz Tony Rice dreadnought! This one is customized with an Adirondack top with a vintage tint (and a hint of bearclaw figuring), a 1 3/4" nut width, and Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue construction. Here is Santa Cruz's description of this model:
The Tony Rice Signature Model represents over 30 years of collaboration between the world’s foremost flatpicking icon and SCGC’s founding luthier, Richard Hoover. Today’s model incorporates decades of refinement in response to players’ demands and the sophisticated evolution of the master’s technique. Never intended to be a copy of Mr. Rice’s iconic 1935 Martin D-28, the TR Model is voiced to showcase his stellar lead work with influences from Clarence White to John Coltrane. This guitar delivers exactly what the contemporary flatpicking artist needs: substantial treble and midrange for rapid single-line lead, clean note separation for definition and the traditional bass boom without the woofy bottom end of some of the venerable Pre-war dreadnoughts.
