Santa Cruz Guitar Company

Santa Cruz Guitar Company was started in 1976 by luthier Richard Hoover. Richard is a great guy, a brilliant luthier and a fabulous story teller. The shop is located in Santa Cruz and well worth a visit. Every friday Richard organises a tour at 10.00 am and shows you how they build guitars. Richard not only builds guitars, he also trained some of the most accomplished contemporary luthiers in his workshop. Richard and his team build somewhere between 500 and 700 guitars a year. His instruments are known for being some of the world’s finest steel-string guitars with characteristics described as being highly resonate and having a complexity of overtones.
