"The 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. 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 Sitka Spruce give this instrument a professional presence at an attainable price."Sitka Spruce Top Indian Rosewood Back and Sides with Gloss Finish Mahogany V Shaped Neck with Satin Finish Ebony Fretboard and Bridge Ebony Headstock Overlay Diamond Volute on Back of Headstock Ivoroid Binding Zipper Back Stripe Herringbone Rosette and Purfling Black Fingerboard Side Dots SCGC Inlay @ 12th Fret Ivoroid Fretboard Binding Tortoise Pickguard Nickel Waverly Tuners 1 11/16" Nut Width 2 3/16" Bridge Spacing 25.375" Scale Length Made in Santa Cruz, California
