This guitar is modeled after the early 1930s dreadnaughts with the neck joining the body at the 12th fret and a 25.25” scale length. This allows the saddle to sit farther back in the “sweet spot” of the top giving the guitar a lovely, crisp mid-range and clear, articulated, round highs having great presence without being harsh anchored by the full and resonant bass one expects from a dreadnought. This guitar has excellent balance and dynamic range and performs well in solo singer-songwriter settings as well as ensembles. Flatpickers and fingerstyle players will find lots to like in this guitar.

There are a couple of features of note from the standard configuration. The top is from a store of old-growth Sitka I acquired from a retiring luthier who had it in inventory since the mid-70s; the X-brace is made from Brazilian Rosewood (a Roy Noble innovation). Ivoroid bindings, herringbone purfling, diamond dot fret markers, and a slotted headstock complement the classic design of this guitar. Nut width - 1.75”, nut and saddle - polished unbleached bone, EVO Gold frets, French polish finish.
