This prewar inspired Herringbone dreadnaught has it all. The BR-160’s great sound and great looks are just part of what will make it one of the more desirable vintage-style acoustic guitars in production today. It starts with a solid Sitka spruce top and hand-carved parabolic top braces that respect the prewar forward x-pattern. Quality Santos rosewood back and sides add a strong bass to the spruce top’s already full sound. The slim mahogany neck is comfortable and features a dovetail neck joint and adjustable truss rod. Beautiful appointments include a Dalmatian tortoise-style pickguard and mother-of-pearl neck and headstock inlays.
