If we don’t continue to tell the stories of the past, they will no longer be remembered. Don Edwards understands this, and has devoted his life to keeping the lyrics and lore the old west alive and well in the mind and hearts of America. 2011 marks the 50th anniversary in the music business for this most beloved cowboy poet and balladeer, and in honor of this career milestone, Santa Cruz Guitar Company is thrilled to debut the Don Edwards Signature Model Guitar. SCGC’s Richard Hoover and Don worked together to create this all Mahogany 12-fret OO with the cowboy singer in mind. A slotted headstock with the vintage script Santa Cruz logo, ivoroid/tortoise/ivoroid rosette, simple black purfling, custom sunburst and gold, 3-on-a-plate Waverly tuners with Snakewood knobs all come together with a classic lone star and Don’s signature inlayed on the fingerboard. With its warmth, presence and sophisticated complexity, this is the trusty sidekick that you’ve always wanted.
