Claro Walnut Dreadnought
Adirondack Spruce Top

Click on any image to enlarge it

This highly figured walnut dreadnought has huge resonance and big sound, leaning, perhaps, toward the mahogany spectrum. It is well-suited for bluegrass flat picking, strumming, fingerpicking, or about any other steel string style. The Adirondack spruce top has some bearclaw figure, and gives the guitar punch and a distinctive tone.

The guitar is trimmed similar to the pre war Style 21, with the rosette similar to Style 28, ebony binding, simple black-white-black wood fiber backstrip, and vintage style Grover V97N tuners. The bracing is pre war style with forward-shifted, scalloped top bracing, and light, traditional back bracing. It has a 25.4" scale; the neck width at the nut is 1 3/4", with 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle. The fretboard and belly bridge are ebony, and the nut and saddle are bone. The guitar incorporates a Martin low profile, bolt-on neck with an adjustable truss rod.
