Here we have a guitar from one of the shop favorites, Franklin Guitars. This is a1987 Prairie state model in Curly Koa back and side and a Sitka Spruce top. One of the defining features of the Prairie state model is the wide upper and lower bouts, providing the guitar with a large sonorous sound. The Curly Koa used on this guitar is of a super high quality with intense figuring running the entire length of the back and sides. We find that apart from being beautiful, the Koa wood lends a great midrange punch, evening out the tonal response of what could have been a bass heavy guitar. Another great instrument fro the Franklin Guitar company.

1987 Franklin Prairie State - Steel String Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This is a well balanced and a good showcase of what a luthier can do with great sets of wood. Fingerpicking sounds complex and full here, with warmth all the way through the spectrum." - Paul Heumiller

"A nice tribute to the Prairie State guitars without the heavy metal support bar to weigh it down. The tone is very even and controlled making the guitar very versatile and useful for many styles of playing.
"
- Al Petteway
