    The Pre-War Dreadnought has the sound and look of a well-loved vintage instrument, but with the price, adjustability, and reliability of a modern guitar. The classic pairing of Adirondack spruce and Honduran mahogany offers tone that is dry and clear, with some sweetness around the edge. The guitar body has been subjected to Pre-War’s “Level One” distress level, simulating a vintage instrument that’s spent most of its life tucked under a bed or stashed in a closet. Ideal for the stage or studio, this is one of the best pre-war replications that we’ve seen or heard. Original Harptone hardshell case included.
