It's been a while since we've had a Santa Cruz Tony Rice "Pro" in stock; and the sound and response of this guitar has us scratching our heads and wondering why. True to Tony Rice's taste, this is a dreadnought that's more than just a cannon. It's got a silky smooth, woody sound: imagine the balance and clarity of an OM, with the power of a Brazilian Rosewood dread, and you're in the ballpark. The trademark enlarged soundhole brings out a warmth in the midrange that makes closed position chords in the middle of the neck a whole new experience; and single note runs high up the fretboard have a joyous snap and sparkle (would you expect anything less?). An absolutely killer guitar, and a current shop favorite. With Ameritage hard case.
