Wow! This guitar delivers classic Dreadnought tone thanks to an Old Growth Adirondack Spruce top and Old Growth Mahogany back and sides and Adirondack bracing attached with hot hide glue. It is super-playable with a roomy 1 3/4” nut width.

Doc Watson, who owned the prototype of the Vintage Artist, said, “This is the Dreadnought I’ve been looking for all my life.” After Doc’s test pilot duties on the prototype, he offered this thoughtful testimonial: “Son, what do I have to do to keep this guitar?”

This instrument is the tonal equal and is technically superior to the most respected Pre-War guitars. To achieve the characteristic EQ and tone of the legendary Doc Watson, aka ‘the Vintage Artist,’ this instrument features an advanced, scalloped X-bracing for powerful bass, complemented by the clear tone and definition of Old Growth Mahogany.  With hard shell case.
