Used – Pre War Adirondack & Mahogany Dreadnought Shade Top D-18

Serial Number: 66139

The classic tone of a vintage Mahogany Dreadnought: Feather weight, dry and clear, with some sweetness around the edge. Tremendous punch with a rainbow of tone colors that changes as you dig in. It can be soft; It can be loud….or anything in between.
