This one has the understated traditional looks that we all crave in a traditional mahogany dread, including tortoise-style binding, no logo on the headstock, and a classic Tor-Tis pickguard.
Large sound hole guitars are always distinctive. Contrary to popular myth, the larger soundhole doesn’t translate to a bigger bass, but actually tunes the bass and brings the tone of the guitar nicely into balance, without sacrificing warmth, volume or that all-important rumble. We hear an enhanced presence with a large-soundhole guitar, but with the Pilgrim, we do not lose any projection in the process. This guitar has a thermally cured Adirondack top, giving it a played-in sound with quick response. And boy, does it look the part!
The nut width is 1 3/4″ and the spacing at the saddle is 2 1/4″. Its got Waverly tuners and a zipper backstrip. This instrument has a bound ebony fingerboard and ebony belly bridge with drop-in saddle. Comes with original tweed H&D hardshell case.
Simply put, one of the best mahogany dreadnoughts money can buy!
Check out the photo of the 1977 Bluegrass Unlimited magazine with a young TR on the front! We think this is a guitar that Tony would love!
