Bold Santa Cruz D Tony Rice build with Indian Rosewood and mastergrade Adirondack Red Spruce. The ultimate D for the contemporary flatpicking artist.
This brand new Santa Cruz D Tony Rice delivers exactly what the contemporary flatpicking artist needs: substantial treble and midrange for rapid single-line lead, clean note separation and volume. This Tony Rice Signature Model represents over 30 years of collaboration between the world’s foremost flatpicking icon and SCGC’s founding luthier, Richard Hoover. Today’s model incorporates decades of refinement in response to players’ demands and the sophisticated evolution of the master’s technique.
Upgraded with an Abalone torch in the headstock and an enlarged soundhole, this D stands out! 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. This 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 German Spruce give this instrument a professional presence and tone.
