(USED) 2012 John Allison Dreadnought, Adirondack Top, Sunburst – $2,695

(USED) John Allison earned his stripes as a builder and sunburst artist at Collings before starting his own family brand in Austin, TX.  He makes a variety of acoustic and electric instruments, and also does professional finish work for a number of other companies.

This guitar is Allison’s take on the pre-war D18, an Adirondack-topped mahogany dreadnought with a beautiful sunburst.  Is the sound modern vintage?  Vintage modern?  We don’t know, but it’s pretty nice!  Less bass-forward than a Martin and not quite as hot in the midrange as a Collings, this is an authoritative bluegrass guitar that can also be strummed lightly for vocal accompaniment.

1 3/4″ nut, 2 1/4″ string spacing at the saddle.  Tortoise body binding.  Ebony bridge, pins, fingerboard and headstock overlay.  A great guitar in every way!

Excellent condition with just a couple headstock nicks and very minor fret wear under the B string.

Serial #0110 (2012)
AMW Price: $2,695
