2011 Kovacik Pre-war style D Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce #56
I built this guitar for a customer in 2011 who recently consigned it for sale in my shop. This is a special guitar, and the Brazilian rosewood that was selected for the back and sides is one of the nicest sets I've ever had, and the Adirondack top as well. Both top and back show all of the best qualities that these two woods are prized for, premium grade. The guitar is a pre-war style dreadnought with solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides and Adirondack spruce top. The top bracing is forward shifted traditional X pattern (scalloped), the top is dressed with herringbone and the body bound in ivoroid. The neck has a 1 3/4" nut width and vintage "V" profile, volute on the back of the headstock. The pin spacing at the bridge is 2 5/16". The finish is nitro cellulose lacquer. The neck has an adjustable truss rod, which is the only significant departure from pre-war specs on the guitar. The guitar has been played and loved since 2011, and there are a few dings and scrapes but overall the condition is excellent. There are no cracks or damage and no repairs, needs nothing. The guitar was built for a bluegrass flat picker and that is what it does best, it loves to be picked hard and loud, and responds aggressively to that kind of attack. But it is equally responsive to fingerstyle play. It is a very versatile instrument, you won't be disappointed. $6000
