Santa Cruz D-Nershi Old Growth Sitka / Indian Rosewood Custom Acoustic Guitar


1 Only In Stock

Bill Nershi was in need of a guitar that could keep up with his rigorous touring schedule. He worked closely with Richard and the SCGC luthiers to build a cannon of a dreadnought that could hold its own on the big stage and still maintain the subtleties of solo acoustic work… a powerful instrument with a flourish of appointments, perfect for the energetic frontman of The String Cheese Incident.

The D-Nershi is one of the hidden gems of the Santa Cruz lineup - a powerhouse dreadnought with exceptional resonance and clarity. Featuring an Old Growth Sitka Spruce top from Santa Cruz's stash of incredible timbers, it sounds like a vintage guitar right out of the case!

Other premium features include tapered Adirondack spruce bracing, hide glue construction, 45-style fretboard inlays and flowerpot headstock inlay, and a vibrant, refined 'Buttered Toast' sunburst finish. Includes Ameritage hardshell case.
