If Randy Wood lays his hands on your damaged instruments, you know that soon it will sound better than when it was new. If you, on the other hand, get to lay your hands on one of his instruments, you know that soon your songs are going to sound better than brand new! This Brazilian-Rosewood-and-Adirondack-Spruce Dreadnought we've got in the shop today has got more energy than a steam engine, and boasts a gorgeous pre-war aesthetic that'll be the envy of every Bluegrass picker you know. One of five guitars that Randy built as copies of a certain Herringbone Dreadnought, this 1993 Dreadnought is perfect for the flatpicker looking for an enormous voice with lots of rumble in the bass.Be it solos or chords, this guitar absolutely kills it--the projection is fearsome, and if you listen at the right moments you can pick up some gorgeous treble overtones fit to melt your heart. We had a go with a few songs, and found this Dreadnought provided excellent accompaniment, if you were prepared to sing a bit louder, and with a thumbpick the bass notes had a fat, juicy snap! to them that's perfect for Blues.
