Used 2018 Peter Dolan 00-18 - Adirondack & Honduran Mahogany


This is the first Dolan guitar to ever grace our shop. This small bodied guitar has a beautiful tone and was constructed with love and attention to detail. Starting off with the exceptional materials this guitar was appointed with. Old growth Adirondack top and old Honduran Mahogany back and sides make the tone of this guitar rich, lively and lush. The guitar is bound in Honduran Rosewood with a matching headstock veneer. The slotted headstock and slotted headstock make this guitar that much more comfortable and tonally responsive. There is checking in the lacquer finish on the guitar top. Comes with a hard shell case.
