Never intended to be a copy of Mr. Rice’s iconic 1935 Martin D-28, the TR Model is voiced to showcase his stellar lead work with influences from Clarence White to John Coltrane. This guitar delivers exactly what the contemporary flatpicking artist needs: substantial treble and midrange for rapid single-line lead, clean note separation for definition and the traditional bass boom without the woofy bottom end of some of the venerable Pre-war dreadnoughts. Master grade Indian Rosewood and old Spruce give this instrument a professional presence at an attainable price.4 9/16" sound hole. Adirondack Spruce bracing with hot hide glue.  Ivoroid tail wedge. Torch headstock inlay.  SCG logo fingerboard inlay and tinted top.  2 3/16" bridge spacing. "V" neck shape with Volute.
