At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Santa Cruz Guitar Co.

When Billy Nershi needed a guitar that could keep with his rigorous touring schedule, Richard Hoover and SCGC developed the D-Nershi—a cannon of a dreadnought that can hold its own on the big stage and still maintain the subtleties of solo acoustic work. The D-Nershi is a powerful-souding instrument with a flourish of appointments—a 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,” Billy said. “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.”

We ordered this D-Nershi true to Billy’s specs, but with a personal detail of our own: the custom “Telluride Valley” heelcap. We are absolutely blown away by the level of detail SCGC’s scrimshaw artist was able to capture, and if you look closely enough, you can even see Billy playing his guitar in front of the Floradora Saloon (which is a short, two-block walk from our shop).
