Santa Cruz (used, 1996) Tony Rice Custom "1934D Hybrid" Acoustic Guitar

Tag No 32-4288 Used

#1628, in "near mint" condition with a black exterior/ red interior Calton Deluxe Hard Shell case.

We present to you one of the finest and most handsome interpretations of a Tony Rice Custom, or what we fondly refer to as a Hybrid “1934D” Tony Rice Custom.   This guitar was born a Tony Rice Pro – which is made with a European Spruce top and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides.  Sometime around 2012, the previous owner noticed that the top was slowly changing shape and Santa Cruz offered to re-top it under warranty.  Instead of replacing the European top with another of its kind, the owner decided to upgrade both the top and the bracing to that of 1934D Master Grade Adirondack which was the best in stock at the time.  The bracing is Adirondack forward shifted x made with the added option of “hot hide glue.”  The re-top was performed by Joseph King who signed the underside of the top.  The old growth Brazilian Rosewood back and sides are straight grained which is said to sound better than the highly figured wood which is used more frequently today. 

Other measurements and specifications include:  25.25 inch shorter scale length, nitrocellulose finish. Dalmatian guard, 1-11/16th nut width, 2-3/16th bridge spacing, 20 inch body length, 4-5/8” deep at the end pin, 3-5/8 at the neck joint, 21 frets with the SC symbol at the 12th fret, 11-1/8” upper bout, 10-1/2” at the waist and 15-1/2” at the lower bout. 

Consider this:  a brand new Santa Cruz 1934D commands a current list price of $18,550 and a “Street” price – actual selling price new – of $16,695.  One might realistically expect that this model guitar could easily sell for $13,356 as a used instrument.   Such incredible sound!  Such a beautiful six-string ringing thingie.   We’re kvelling.    *NOW ON HOLD*
