Santa Cruz Brad Paisley Signature Pre-War Dreadnought - Natural


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


The new Brad Paisley Signature Model is the result of close collaboration between Santa Cruz founder Richard Hoover and Paisley himself, and brings to life the coveted tone of an authentic Pre-War dreadnought. This is truly one of the finest acoustics you can find, thanks to Santa Cruz’s exceptional attention to detail and Paisley’s playing expertise. The B/PW boasts some absolutely stellar Bear Claw Sitka spruce for its top wood, and eye-catching Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. These woods have more than just gorgeous figuring, though - they produce a rich, fully realized dreadnought boom with singing sustain, crisp highs, and powerful low-end. The scalloped "X" bracing structure ensures a bit of extra resonance (compared to a non-scalloped design) so the Sitka Spruce really sings. The Brad Paisley Signature Model also feels great in your hands thanks to a vintage-style “V” neck profile, giving your fretting hand a comfortable, full feeling. This guitar also has various high-quality features that give it its own unique character, such as a Custom Paisley Case, SCGC 5th fret inlay, plus some exquisite ivoroid binding and herringbone purfling. All in all, this guitar is a masterwork of playability, tone, and aesthetics - you’d expect nothing less from Santa Cruz.
