Fairbanks F-35 Roy Smeck, 12-Fret, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany, Sunburst - NEW

(NEW) Join us in welcoming Fairbanks Guitars to the Acoustic Music Works family!!  Dale has a deserved reputation as one of the best builders of Gibson-style guitars out there, and we're loving having them in the store.  To our ears, the Fairbanks have the satisfying thump and dryness of a good Gibby, but also a very clean dimension to their tone.  They're lightly built and the craftsmanship is exceptional. 

Here's a 12-fret "Roy Smeck" style F-35 with Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides.  It's very light indeed, and features one of Dale's wonderful vintage-style sunbursts.  The bridge and fingerboard are ebony, and it has simple dot inlays.  The neck is a modified V shape, and features a 1 3/4" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle.  Short scale, of course.  This one has nickel Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons.  Includes original hard case. 

Thanks to Rolly Brown for the great demo on this guitar!
