Click on any image to enlarge it

A 12-fret slot head dreadnought built with Honduran rosewood back & sides and an Adirondack spruce top. Honduran rosewood has about the same density as Brazilian rosewood, and is known for its ringing tap tone (Honduran rosewood is used as the sound bars on the finest marimbas) This Honduran rosewood back set is quarter sawn with a couple of very small knots and a strip of sapwood. The body is slightly deeper than a conventional 12-fret slot head guitar. The trim is pre war Style 21 (although Martin did not make a Style 21 12-fred dreadnought), primarily represented by the herringbone rosette and (faux) tortoise binding. The finish is varnish. The guitar has forward-shifted, scalloped bracing, the neck width at the nut is just over 1 3/4", with 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle, and 25.4" scale. The fretboard and saddle are ebony, and the nut and saddle are bone. The guitar incorporates modern features such as a low profile, bolt-on neck and an adjustable truss rod.

This guitar has nice action, and great sound with balance, projection, and sustain. You will not be disappointed with the sound or feel of this guitar.
