What We Think

Alright!  More of this!  If you love vintage guitars, you owe it to yourself to explore instruments drawing their inspiration outside of the largely un-challenged pantheon of old Martins and Gibsons.  This Larson Bros inspired Style 6 is resonant, punchy, and dramatic enough to pull off all manner of vintage Americana--from Irving Berlin to Big Bill Broonzy, it's in there!

Condition: Used, Very Good-Excellent (small finish stain on lower bout, pictured)
