    Our price:

    This is one well played, well cared for Santa Cruz Tony Rice Signature Model. She was built in 2003 and has seen lot of stages and sounds and plays wonderful. Some dents, light scratchin in the back show the use. The tuners have been upgraded with the ultimate Schaller Grandtune units.

    This guitar represents over 30 years of collaboration between the world’s foremost flatpicking icon Tony Rice and SCGC’s founding luthier, Richard Hoover. This guitar 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.

    The 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. Master grade Indian Rosewood and old Sitka Spruce give this instrument a professional presence at an attainable price. The guitar is in very good plus condition. Some playmarks and two dings on the top. Fretwear is normal but still many miles to go. Great work Richard! On top of that package a K&K Pure Mini pickup system with volume and tone controle is installed. Very good sound too.
