When we say they just don't make 'em like this any more, we mean it. And although Mike Doolin is no longer building instruments, he's added some key features to his guitars which allow them to continue to play as beautifully as their first day, from a pinless bridge system to a fully adjustable neck, which allows one to maintain optimal playing action with the same ease as adjusting the truss rod: just one twist of an allen key. That said, this Dreadnought is set up perfectly already!
With slinky low action, spot-on intonation across the fretboard (itself with unprecedented access in the upper registers), and a voice clear as church bells on Sunday, this 2002 Dreadnought is much more than the sum of its parts. Speaking of parts, we've got a gorgeous set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides, fretboard, and bridge, and is paired with an Adirondack Spruce top that's bound in flamed Koa for a package that's exciting yet elegant. The trebles are blessed with sweet shimmering overtones all across the frets, and the low-end has a powerful projection and well-defined edge. Amplified with a B-Band A2 Stereo pickup, and wrapped up in a Calton flight case, this exceptional, unusual Dreadnought is ready for any gig, at any place.

"Not only is this a gorgeously distinct-looking guitar, it also has a wonderful clarity across all the registers, and plays and feels more like a fingerstyle SJ instrument, but with added depth and color." - Paul Heumiller
"There aren't many acoustic guitars that allow this much access to the upper frets, and this one has great ringing tone up high as well. Not to mention the intonation is spot on, which makes it more likely that you'd want to play that high up on the neck anyway." - Al Petteway
