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 front man of The String Cheese Incident. “SCGC has really captured the look and sound of the guitar that took me from Floradora Saloon in Telluride to Red Rocks Amphitheater and beyond. Whether I’m soloing up the neck, playing slide or just strumming chords, this guitar sounds sweet and full. Thanks Santa Cruz, you really nailed it.”- Billy Nershi
