Santa Cruz Guitar Company founded by Richard Hoover began building guitars and carved-top mandolins in 1972. By 1976 his focus was on the modern steel string guitar. The task of becoming a master at all aspects of guitar making is a lifelong pursuit, and Richard has patiently refined his craftsmanship and knowledge as his company has grown. Today they build some of the finest acoustic instruments made.

A Sharp Music Company has carried Richard's exquisite instruments for over a decade. Listed below are the guitars we have in stock.
