second guitar

$849 with case, free shipping



Gorgeous looks, nice details like
Abalone position markers, Mother-of-pearl and abalone design on peghead.

Great feel and sound.


Not much, this guitar is becoming my favorite in my collection.


Select solid Sitka Spruce top with hand-carved parabolic top braces in authentic prewar forward X-pattern
Abalone border and sound hole rosette
Premium solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides with abalone pearl on all borders
Premium ebony fingerboard and bridge
Abalone position markers on fingerboard
Delicate marquetry center strip on back
Kluson style enclosed tuners with “butterbean” buttons — richly gold plated
Nut and saddle are made from bone
Full D-45 style ornamentation

I would rec. the BR180 to anyone looking for a nicely made acoustic under $1000.

The guitar plays and looks like it would cost more than $850.
