Wayne Henderson and his guitars need little introduction these days. Having built for an army of the best players in the world, both in the southeast where we live and for big names like Eric Clapton, his guitars are now legendary. But why? Tone, that's why. No maker reaches the highest levels without killer tone. This D-18 style Mahogany Dread was the prize for the 1996 Wayne Henderson Guitar Competition and it has been put to good use since. The well-played spruce top is giving it's all now, and it is extremely loud and clear as a bell. Come find out what all the fuss is about!

1996 Henderson D-18 - Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Wayne Henderson's guitars are always a treat to play. They are extremely lively and strong. This Mahogany D-18 is no exception, it has a big voice and plays great. We are delighted to have a one owner Henderson built for the 1996 Wayne Henderson Guitar Competition. Word has spread about the greatness of Wayne's guitars since the release of the book "Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument," so it's a special treat to have found this one for our players." - Paul Heumiller

"This one has seen some playing during its lifetime. I bet it has a few stories to tell. It's one of those hard-to-come-by Henderson dreadnoughts that everyone is always on the lookout for and a great one." - Al Petteway
