Gruhn Guitars Tony Rice Santa Cruz

Tony Rice's Santa Cruz 10th Anniversary

Tony Rice's guitar work as leader of the Tony Rice Unit and with David Grisman's band has established him as one of the all-time great flat-pickers. The Santa Cruz Guitar Company recognized Tony's talent early on, and the Tony Rice model is the flagship of the Santa Cruz line.

This special 10th anniversary edition was made for Tony in 1991. The back and sides are Brazilian rosewood. The bracing specs our outlined in a handwritten letter and drawing by John Paganoni. Letters from SCGC founder Richard Hoover and Tony also accompany this guitar.

In near mint condition, this guitar (inv.#AM4967) was originally priced at $12,000 and is now offered at $9,500.
