The Basics

This gorgeous 12-fret Dreadnought is made with sinker mahogany from Belize and topped with Adirondack Spruce. The design is inspired by a 1929 Ditson 111 currently in the Martin Museum. Finished in the New Custom Shop Thin Finish package, only 75 of these instruments will be made for the world in 2012.
