A wrap up of the final day of NAMM 2015.
Santa Cruz Guitar's Richard Hoover (one of the real gents in the biz,) dove into a stash of his most priceless and prized tonewoods to build this Tony Rice signature model. The top is 100-year old German Spruce, and the Brazilian Rosewood that make up the back and sides are from a batch that Hoover considers some of the best sounding he's encountered. The one-of-a-kind guitar is very expensive. But the proceeds go to Tony Rice himself who has been unable to perform due to severe arthritis.
