Santa Cruz / Tony Rice / 2002 / Guitar

Santa Cruz Tony Rice from 2002. Richard Hoover from SCGC and Tony Rice collaborated many years in producing what is known to be one of the finest contemporary Bluegrass guitar. The Tony Rice model was based on Rice 's original D28, and features the typical light build Santa Cruz is known for using a Spruce top and Rosewood back/sides. In Tony’s own words, “This is a guitar you can go to war with.’’ Soundwise,  yes, but from the looks you won’t tell you are playing a nearly twenty year  old guitar! It’s from 2002 and in excellent condition and has only a spot of minuscule dents on the lower bout bass side and smaller dents and light scratches throughout the instrument. Alongside the bridge, there is some lacquer deterioration from air having been underneath the clear coat. The guitar has been upgraded with a Fishman Piezo and aftermarket wooden bridge pins with a decorative abalone dot. It is an extremely loud and responsive cannon, a true banjo killer, yet really balanced and that large soundhole carries the sound a long, long way. Travels in its original TKL with the original booklets and hangtags.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
