Pick of the Week: Episode 3. SCGC Paisley Pre-War
Welcome to episode 3 of Pick of the Week. This week we’re looking at a beautiful Santa Cruz… and this one is extra special because it’s a signature model from one of the world’s most notable country stars, Brad Paisley. Check it out, below.
A master of the guitar, Brad Paisley is known for his countless hits and signature style. When Brad set out to design a signature acoustic, he chose to work with Santa Cruz out of his desire to be associated with quality and responsibility, while honoring his dedication to the sustainability of treasured tone woods.
Richard Hoover based Brad’s build off of SCGC’s Pre-War Dreadnought design, while working closely with Brad to refine a handful of personalized appointments. The Adirondack Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides make for a classic, powerful dread tonality, adding slightly more bass presence without sacrificing the unmistakable balance SCGC is known for.
The rosette, Herringbone purfling, and Zipper backstrip give this dread a classic look, while the custom cowboy hat peghead inlay and 1 3/4” nut width make this guitar custom built to Brad’s orders.
Brad Paisley fans and dreadnought fans alike will easily fall in love with the high quality build, and timeless look and tone of this Santa Cruz Brad Paisley Pre War Model. Check out the full demo, played by Carl Miner, below.
