This American Beauty is a remarkable H & D Herringbone Custom dreadnought guitar. A really outstanding guitar. Brand New. Right out of the case it was apparent this will be a special guitar for someone. Speaks effortlessly without pushing it at all. When one does lay into it it fills the room with the most wonderful, balanced and clear sound. Sonically, it occupies a sweet spot right in between a great mahogany and rosewood guitar, with the best qualities of both. Rides the line with such elegance and grace. The top is Alaskan old growth spruce and the back and sides are Native Virginia black walnut with lovely tight curl/flame - this figure being a little unusual for walnut. !!!
And before you write this off because it doesn't have an "Adirondack" top, understand this: I have sold hundreds of dreadnoughts over the years and some of the best sounding guitars to come through my shop have had Alaskan spruce tops. It may be time to get over the Adirondack obsession because it seems be becoming, for the most part, a marketing point. Ebony fretboard and bridge.
This is doubtless a lifetime guitar.
Tweed H & D case included of course.
