Ben Wilborn has done it again: he's built a strong, articulate dreadnought which blows any other guitar in the price range right out of the water. Let's talk specs: Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Western Red Cedar top, Curly Maple bindings, Wilborn's characteristic diamond appointments. You simply can't find a guitar for $5,000 which has so much going on under the hood--with the excellent craftsmanship of a luthier like Wilborn. The fit and finish is excellent here; smooth as silk.

This guitar is amazingly light, and it practically begs for you to play fast passages with it. The soundport is excellent for getting automatic feedback, and the Western Red Cedar top warms up the low-end of this dreadnought, so the tone is incredibly balanced. Wilborn's aesthetic choices, from the wooden pickguard to a scalloped bridge (which is gorgeous and comfortable for the palm, for a rest or for damping), are in a word: elegant. This guitar comes with an original Superior hardshell case.

New Wilborn Guitars Dreadnought -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"I was shocked the first time I picked this guitar up. It's such a featherweight! And yet it's got all the dreadnought projection, and a well-balanced tonal palette, and it plays oh, so smoothly. I loved flatpicking this guitar, but it also responded beautifully and comfortably to fingerstyle as well. " - Paul Heumiller

"I was really impressed with this instrument. The tone is even and the projection is what you want to hear in a dreadnought guitar. For a Brazilian rosewood guitar, you won't find anything better in this price range." - Al Petteway
