Overview:

Traditional in design, the Vintage Model pays close attention to pre-war details and appointments, featuring an Adirondack Spruce top and Herringbone top purfling.

Adirondack spruce, also known as Eastern Red Spruce, was the legendary topwood used on most pre-war American-made guitars. Properly sawn, Adirondack is much stiffer than Sitka and Engelmann spruce, both along and across the grain. This allows us to make thinner, lighter tops, resulting in lightning-quick response and power to spare. Most guitar grade "Adirondack" spruce these days comes from our own backyard--the state of Maine, which still has large stands of original and second growth softwood forests.

To maintain a vintage look, we select only the highest grade of East Indian rosewood, perfectly matched and quartered with tight, straight grain and darker-than-average color. (Though Brazilian rosewood isn't a standard feature, it is our most popular custom upgrade). Rounding out the visual package, the Vintage Model features herringbone top trim, ivoroid body binding, slotted squares and diamonds inlay, premium tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel Waverly tuners.

If the best thing about our Vintage Model is the Adirondack top that comes standard, the next best feature must be the price. Take a moment to compare appointments. We don't think you'll find a better value in an Adirondack topped, traditionally - styled acoustic!
