Yellow Wood Size-1 Guitar

$2,000. with hard case, + ship

This Size-1 guitar is a parlor guitar 13" across the lower bout.

Bright tone, well balanced, & loud.

Long-leaf Yellow Pine body, Sipo Mahogany neck, Padauk fretboard, Texas Ebony bridge, Black Walnut body trim, Cuban Mahogany head plate.



.................................................

The Blowing Wheat drednaught

$3450. w/ case

Honestly, this guitar is a force of nature, Spruce & Mahogany, Ebony & Bone are working together for a great sound!

The volume & tone is powerful, and it will grow to be something special, perfect for Bluegrass flat-picking.

Straight-grain Honduras Mahogany back, sides & neck, Adirondack (Red) Spruce top, Ebony fretboard & bridge, Rosewood binding and trim. French-polish shellac finish.

All-hot-hide-glue construction, pre-war style scalloped bracing, "Blowing Wheat" pearl fret markers on a solid-black Ebony board, 1-3/4" at the nut, string spacing 2-5/16". The neck is a very comfortable V-shape, straight & strong with a adjustable truss rod. Bone nut & saddle, unslotted Ebony pins, pre-war style Waverly nickel "oval button" tuners.
