Like many of today's premier guitar builders, Richard Hoover has a profound admiration of and respect for the sound and design features of the iconic instruments made by Martin and Gibson that have inspired so many players over the last eighty years. His life's work has been dedicated to gaining an understanding and appreciation of their salient features. And, as is the tradition of modern stage performers steeped in a study and performance of the classics, he has applied the knowledge he has gained from more than forty years of experience honing his skills in the craft to create contemporary interpretations that are classics in their own right - instruments that capture the essence of the original but are enhanced by the unique personality and vision of a gifted individual.

What we had to say about the last VJ we had in our shop:

The best of the older Gibson Advance Jumbos that we have encountered have been disarmingly light in weight and simple in their appearance with a straightforward, direct, and powerful voice - a kind of working man's guitar that was a stalwart companion for many performers. The spirit is the same with this Santa Cruz Vintage Jumbo, as, likewise, it is surprising light in weight. But with regards to its "simple" appearance, the build quality and the finish are so good that simple is not a word that comes to mind when one seeks to describe this splendid instrument...simply elegant might be more appropriate. And, with regards to its sound, this guitar is a delight for not only is its voice marked by power, it is one also marked by refinement with a singular presence, definition, and character that not only makes it suitable for any style of music, but, consequently, simply irresistible to play as well.
