From the press release:
July 2nd, 2015. Brad Paisley and the Santa Cruz Guitar Company proudly announce the debut of the Brad Paisley Signature Model Guitar at the 2015 Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TN. The story begins with Paisley’s acoustic guitar mastery and his well-deserved super star status. His decision to partner with a shop as small as Santa Cruz Guitar Company, who makes approximately 600 guitars a year, came from his desire to be associated with quality and responsibility above all else. He wanted his name on a handmade instrument that his fans and guitar aficionados alike could trust. Richard Hoover, owner and founder of SCGC, worked closely with Paisley to design a personalized, custom dreadnought based on SCGC’s Pre-War Dreadnought Model. The Paisley signature model (The B/PW) honors Paisley’s dedication to the sustainability of treasured tone woods, built with his preferred customizations for playability, tone and look in mind. SCGC thanks Brad’s good friends at Artisan Guitars, whose many years of coaching and loving service made possible the introduction, designs and ongoing goodwill to make it happen. Here are the specifications: Brad Paisley Signature Model B/PW Specs: Sustainable yield, master grade East Indian Rosewood and Bear Claw Sitka Spruce, 14-fret, 25.375” scale length, 1-3/4” nut width, 2-3/16” bridge spacing, custom voiced/advanced X-bracing, herringbone rosette and top purfling, Ebony peghead overlay with custom cowboy hat inlay, Vintage Tinted top, Waverly Tuners, Santa Cruz Parabolic Mid-Tension Strings, tooled leather black custom guitar case
. Introductory retail price: $5,450.
