Preston Thompson SL-MA Mahogany/Adirondack

Serial Number: 1527

The Thompson Slope Shoulder 14 fret Dreadnought is a cousin to our standard 14 fret Dreadnought models. These comfortable and graceful guitars have the powerful presence of all Thompson Dreadnoughts but are noted for having a balanced tone across the board. They are vibrant guitars with a strong, clear response and lush warmth.

All models feature Adirondack tops and bracing. Each top is individually hand graduated to bring out the best possible response. The traditional X braces are forward shifted and hand scalloped in the 1930’s style.
