Details

This Santa Cruz Tony Rice signature model is the result of over 30 years of collaboration between SCGC’s founder, Richard Hoover, and the flatpicking legend himself. Sporting a European Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, and Ebony fretboard, this guitar delivers everything a modern day flatpicker desires. With considerable treble and midrange, refined low end response, retaining the traditional bass boom one would expect from a Pre-war dread, and clean note separation, this SCSG Tony Rice represents decades of refinement and appreciation for the master’s technique.
