Model 'Slope Shoulder Dred'

Slope Shoulder Dred

This is a versatile classically shaped guitar for flat pickers or finger stylist. The full powerful sound is complex and articulate with loads of volume so you can be heard along with the other members of your group or solo work.

Slope Shoulder Dred

This particular guitar is made from my stash of Ancient Brazilian rosewood, carbon dated to have been cut in 1865. The top is Carpathian spruce, Adirondack is also used, Brazilian rosewood finger board with my standard inlays, and Rodgers tuners.

Can be ordered directly from the builder or Dream Guitars
