Earlier this week we told you about the fundraising auction being held by WDVX Knoxville, and of the autographed Martin DXM guitar being auctioned. That auction ends tomorrow, Sunday February 11th, but this evening sees the beginning of the auction for the second instrument.
This time around it’s a Tony Rice model Santa Cruz guitar signed by Tony Rice himself. This guitar is built to Tony’s personal specifications with Adirondack spruce and Indian rosewood. It features a shorter scale at 25.25″ which provides for a fast and supple action. It also has the signature 4 9/16″ soundhole and a hand-tuned top.
Tony says this is:
a guitar you can go to war with
In addition to Tony’s signature, the instrument also boasts the autographs of Del McCoury and Larry Keel. Once again this instrument does come with its own hard shell case. Both the guitar and case were graciously provided by Smoky Mountain Guitars in Pigeon Forge.
The bidding began yesterday evening, Friday February 9th, and will continue through the auction’s closing date of Sunday February 18th, at 6PM EST. More photos of the instrument are available on the ebay auction page.
