Click on any image to enlarge it

This custom 12-fret slothead Honduran dreadnought has great projection and balance. Because of its body size it is well-suited for flat picking, because of the string spacing and 12-fret slothead configuration it is great for strumming and fingerpicking. Augmenting the rosewood back and sides, the Adirondack spruce top gives the guitar punch and a distinctive tone.

It is trimmed similar to the pre war Style 28, with herringbone purfling and rosette, maple binding, zipper backstrip, and vintage style Waverly tuners. The rosewood has distinctive sapwood on the centerline and heel cap. The top bracing is pre war style with forward-shifted, scalloped spruce, and light, traditional spruce back bracing. It has a 25.4" scale; the neck width at the nut is 1 13/16", with 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle.
