Want to learn more about the evolution of sonic experience that goes into every Santa Cruz guitar? Come join us for an afternoon of storytelling & intrigue, and learn more about the history of SCGC firsthand.
Richard Hoover has traveled all over the world to procure responsibly harvested old growth tone woods and is known internationally as a forefather of the boutique acoustic guitar industry. Now in its 37th year, Richard and his team of 14 highly skilled luthiers handcraft a few hundred guitars a year in the small shop in Santa Cruz. This workshop will cover everything from internet myth busting, acoustic science and engineering, and tone woods.
Richard will discuss & demonstrate bracing techniques and proprietary design elements that distinguish each Santa Cruz guitar. We plan an open forum and discussion after the workshop, so you can ask specific questions on their artistry & craft.
Private Design Consultation
Following the presentation, Richard has offered a personal consultation by Appointment Only, for those of you who would like his assistance in designing a guitar specifically for you! Attendees will learn how to design a custom guitar to fit their specific playing style, sound requirements and personal aesthetic values.
This session of our gathering will be one on one with you and Richard Hoover, limited to only a few participants. You can personally explore the extensive range of custom options offered by the boutique guitar shop that created the “custom shop” concept.
