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

0-size Guitar. $1,800. with case

0-Size guitars are 13-1/2" wide at the lower bout.

The tone is "vintage" the volume goes to 11. The 1-3/4" nut & 2-1/4" string spacing excells for fingerstyle, so vibrant you can play with the very lightest touch. If you play with a flatpick, you had better get earplugs. Shortscale, 12 frets to the body says "old timey" or "blues". The guitar feels "sturdy" under the arms, everything is just right. This is a special guitar, if you like this style, don't let it pass!

Made of stained Douglas Fir on the back & sides, a Red Spruce top with Red Spruce bracing, a laminated & stained Poplar neck, truss-rod, Paduak fretboard & bridge, Black walnut binding & trim, bone nut & saddle, Ebony pins, and Golden Age tuning machines.
I always build entirely with hot hide glue, and finish with French Polish Shellac.

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.
