      And from me a hearty thanks for sticking around and continuing to build these wonderful instruments that have so caught my fancy.

      Oh boy, 42 years. I was living on Seaview Ave at that time and still remember going to Richard’s early shop to tweak my D18, memories. Had no idea what the future held for SCGC, one happy day in 2003 I found a SCGC Tony Rice, been a SCGC player since.

      Best wishes to a very special man, Richard Hoover, and all the great vibes he has brought to each of us.

      42 years is something to be proud of. Congratulations Richard and others who made/make the contributions that matter. I love my Santa Cruz guitars!

      Congratulations to RH and crew.  Fine instruments built by good people doing good things.

      First one I ever saw was a tiny, exquisite instrument in Kent CT at a long-gone music store – I still don’t know what model it was, probably an H.  It was $2000 or thereabouts and just a bit more than I could afford.   Left me with a hunger for one that took another decade or more to sate.

      42: the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.


      So glad to see SCGC chugging along building the best guitars in the world.  I remember 35 well. (Geez has it be 7 years already?!)  Here’s to another 42.
