Pre-War Slope Shoulder


Yesterday's New Guitar

A favorite of many a famous songwriter or folksinger. But completely at home is the hands of a bluesman of blueg-rasser as well. The J model is a feather weight and responds to the fingerpicker's touch as wall as the flatpicker's. it can whisper and it can shout. You feel it moving the air around you. This is. particular great guitar for the solo performer. In fact it is a perfect fit for any musical setting.

As close as it get's to a real vintage guitar from the 1930's. Pre War builds reproductions of 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. The 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.

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.
