D-28 Louvin Brothers

The Basics

The late country and gospel duo, the Louvin Brothers, are the inspiration for this D-28 Louvin Brothers limited edition model. Based off a D-28 CFM 1955 model, the solid Sitka spruce top is printed with the album artwork from the Louvin Brothers album “Satan is Real”. The dreadnought 14-fret body is constructed with solid East Indian rosewood and the modified low oval neck is mahogany. The tuners are nickel wafflebacks with oval knobs. The interior label of each guitar will be signed by CFM IV and numbered in sequence with a total run size of 50.
