Just Arrived: A Santa Cruz Brad Paisley Signature Arrives in Nashville

You may have seen Brad Paisley In the news a fair bit recently…

Firstly, there’s been a lot of talk about Brad Paisley replacing Taylor Swift on the famous country legends mural in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m personally open to a bit (a lot) of Taylor Swift, but it’s safe to say that this move reflects nothing but the astronomical impact which Brad Paisley has had on country music. Taylor Swift may be the biggest pop star on the planet, yet Brad Paisley’s portrait was still painted over hers. He’s a pretty big deal.

Not to mention the recent news of Paisley gifting Buck McCoy, a survivor of the Christmas Day bombings in Nashville, with an all-new Fender Signature Esquire Telecaster. Not only did this allow McCoy to return to work and perform with his band, but he also offered unlimited groceries at his year-round free grocery store and took to social media to encourage others to donate to McCoy’s GoFundMe page.

And incredible musician and an equally lovely man, for sure.
So with 32 top 10 singles (19 of which got to number 1) over 11 million albums sold, three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, and two American Music Awards, you really don't need me to tell you what a talented musician he is, the stats speak for themselves.
So something rather magical happened when one of the world’s best country musicians and one of the world’s best guitar makers came together to create a special model, that’s it— The Santa Cruz Guitar Company Brad Paisley Signature Model.

The story begins with Paisley’s desire to be associated with quality and responsibility above all else. He wanted to have his name on a handmade instruments that both his fans and guitar aficionados could put their trust in. Richard Hoover and Paisley worked closely to design a personalized custom dreadnought based on the SCGC’s beloved Pre-War dreadnought model. Their signature model honours both Paisley’s and SCGC’s dedication to the sustainability of tonewoods, built with his preferred adaptations for great playability, tone and aesthetics in mind.
This guitar produces all the qualites you'd expect from a pre-war dreadnought; a rich presence, punch and volume. The choice of Indian Rosewood back and sides, paired with an Adirondack Spruce top, make a classic, powerful tone, paralleled with an inspiring bass, without sacrificing clear balance. On top of this, Violin Purfle rosette, Herringbone purfling, Zipper backs-trip, custom cowboy hat peghead inlay and 1 3/4” nut width are customizations added by Brad’s order. This collaboration resulted in a guitar that is unmistakably Paisley with only the finest build quality and attention to detail we know and love from SCGC.
