With enough inlay to satisfy the needs of an entire collection of guitars, this 2011 Presentation Dreadnought from Asheville luthier Larry K. Brown is the very model of intricate, meticulous detail. Brown, famous for his Renaissance period instruments, has built over 1800 instruments, ranging from lutes and cellos to Gibson L-00 copies.

The inlay work which adorns the headstock, fretboard, rosette, bridge, and top features classic motifs of vases and vines, twining and sprawling between fretwire and tuners. With such splendid appointments, it was only natural for Brown to also employ exquisite tonewoods for the body; Carpathian Spruce for the top and Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. Set up as a vigorous strummer, this Dreadnought is big-voiced and rumbling.

2011 Brown Dreadnought -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"It boggles the mind just thinking about the sheer number of hours it must have taken Larry to adorn this guitar with so much inlay work. The aesthetic is traditional and well executed, and complements the rich, opened up voice very well." - Paul Heumiller

"The tone is balanced, and the inlay beautiful." - Al Petteway
