    Our price:

    This is the first guitar that Richard Hoover built for his 20th anniversary of the Santa Cruz Guitar Company. Nineteen guitars would follow but this is the true number 1.

    This OM model build by Richard Hoover and his crew extraordinare is in pristine condition except for one small ding on the back of the headstock. Chances are rare you will ever see another one in this condition. If you want a true piece of Santa Cruz history combined in an amazing instrument, then this one is yours. Consignment sale, limited parts exchange.

    1997 was a special year for Richard. The company was really doing well and new models and techniques were incorparated into his instruments. One of these techniques was the inlay work. The famous inlay artist Larry Robinson designed and crafted the commemorative Art Deco pre war style inlay work on this guitar. A true piece or art! That is not all: this instrument sounds amazing. Full bodied tones in the low end and sprakling highs.
