(Serial No. 1354) Excellent near mint condition. I think Richard Hoover and the luthiers at Santa Cruz build some of the best guitars available. The combination of figured Brazilian rosewood back and sides with a fine grained German spruce top is one of Richards's favorite wood combinations, and for good reason. The guitar has a strong powerful volume with a beautiful clear articulate tone. Its just an exceptional sounding instrument. Very light weight and extremely responsive guitar. Brazilian rosewood back and sides, German spruce top, fully bound ebony fingerboard and bridge, small dot fingerboard inlay, gold Waverly tuners, and a pearl logo and soundhole rosette. 1 3/4 inch nut. Neck is straight, frets are excellent, plays very nicely with a low action as the neck was just reset by Steve Kovacik in NY. The reset is very clean, nearly invisible. The pictures of the bridge are new since the reset. The remaining pictures are older and do not show the taller saddle. The guitar is very clean, near mint, with two finish checks in the top lacquer. Anything you see in the pictures that looks like a nick or a ding is a reflection. Comes with the original high end TKL hard shell case.
