  • Handcrafted by Michigan luthier Gary Halliday, this eloquently expressive, simply designed guitar has all the right elements that a good-sounding dreadnought should. It features an aged Sitka spruce top with a scalloped and forward-shifted x-brace, plus attractive koa back and sides. The decorative details include ivoroid binding, abalone diamonds and squares position markers and a manzanita burl rosette that is distinctly fetching. Overall, a fine instrument.
    The exact appearance of this item may vary.
