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.

17" wide Larson-style Jumbo. $4000. w/custom Cedar Creek case & leather accents

Are you a Blonde, Country Western singer? This guitar was built for you!

A very easy playing V-shaped neck, the guitar has a rumbling bass, and is surprisingly balanced from string to string.

As are all my guitars, this Jumbo is built light-weight, easy to hold, and resonates in your hands.

The modern side-port acts as a "monitor", directing sound to the player.

European flamed Maple back & sides, Carpathian Spruce top, figured Honduras Mahogany neck, Madagascar Rosewood fretboard & bridge.

Vintage Torch head stock abalone inlay, snowflakes on the fret board & abalone rosette too!

Rosewood binding is set off by a fancy rope purfling that matches the back center strip.

The nut width is 1-13/16". The string spacing at the bridge is 2-5/16"

510 Gold Gotoh tuners are smooth as silk.
