Pre-War Dreadnought Herringbone Shaded


Yesterday’s New Guitar

As close as it get’s to a real vintage guitar from the 1930’s. Pre War guitars are built based on Martins and Gibsons from the 1930’s and 1940’s. On this dreadnought Pre-War nails both the looks and tone of an old Martin. This acoustic guitar has been aged to look like it has been on the road for many years. Played over and over. And somehow Pre-War managed to age the tone as well. It that very woody, dry and warm tone. If you are looking for vintage tone and vibe this is definitely a guitar to consider.

This one has the East Indian Rosewood back and sides and distress level 1.

Pre-War Dreadnought Herringbone Shaded


Video is not of the actual guitar.



The perfect replica of an old dreadnought cannon. It has a big bark and lot's of warmth as well. It's chords are sweet and single notes shine like diamonds. Whether play in a duo or a full band, the tone will through loud and clear. What is old is new again....step into this time machine with this Pre War Heringbone.

Pre War utilizes hot hide glue for all of the bracing as well as in their perfectly fit traditional dovetail neck joints. They use Torrefied tops and hand carved Torrefied brace wood for it's dry-aged tone. What you get is a guitar with the soul, sound, and look of a well-loved vintage instrument, but with the price, adjust-ability, and reliability of a modern guitar.
