2001 Santa Cruz Tony Rice Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood

The Santa Cruz Tony Rice Model represents over 30 years of collaboration between the world's foremost flatpicking icon and SCGC's founding luthier, Richard Hoover. Richard asked if he could design Tony a custom instrument that would benefit his playing and tonal requirements, and there began a lifelong friendship in 1979.

Today's TR model incorporates decades of refinement in response to players' demands and the sophisticated evolution of the master's technique. The TR Model is voiced to showcase his stellar lead work with influences from Clarence White to John Coltrane. Tony's guitars 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.

This guitar has Adirondack was the legendary topwood used on most pre-war American-made guitars that has come to be known as the "Holy Grail" of top woods. Adirondack has a high stiffness across and along the grain, making it one of the go-to topwoods for flatpickers.

The gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood on the back and sides broadens out the dynamic range, bringing overtone rich low-end and mellow yet defined trebles. When fingerpicking, each note is rich and warm, yet well defined and easily articulated.

Additional custom appointments include the Adirondack top, Brazilian Rosewood peghead overlay and the Dalamation pickguard.
