Looking for a Pre-War dreadnought? Fancy a sunburst? Pounce on this one while the pouncing's good. This Sunburst Model D is a Level 2.5 relic (on a scale of 1 to 3), so the wear is very noticeable whether you're up close of ten feet away. This guitar has an incredibly satisfying response, with a booming low E string that'll rattle your ribcage. The midrange is very present and open, with chimey trebles that would certainly power through any jam. It sounds great fingerpicked up the neck with a capo, but really -- this thing screams "bluegrass" in looks and sound. A knockout guitar for the flatpicker who wants vibe, tone and playability. While this is technically a pre-owned guitar ... calling it "used" seems incorrect. Really, with this level of relic treatment, who would know who put which scratch where? We sold it when it was new, and a trusted client has kept it perfectly humidified, with a setup unaltered from factory spec. Priced with its original Harptone hard case.
