The Basics

Limited to 44 guitars (after John's birth year of 1944), these gorgeous 14-fret slope-shoulder Dreadnoughts boast back and sides of highly figured koa and an Adirondack spruce top finished in stunning Amber Burst. Inlay for the fingerboard is a John Sebastian design in mother of pearl. Each piece will include a label signed by John Sebastian and numbered in sequence, along with a photo label.
