Delightfully opened up, this 1996 D-18S from Lynn Dudenbostel lends weight to the argument that older equals better. The voice speaks to the hundreds of hours of tunes that have already gone into these fine tonewoods: dry, cracklin' bass from the Mahogany back and sides and a crisp set of treble strings with a toothy bite (a la Adirondack Spruce). With the 12-fret neck and Slope Dreadnought body, this Dudenbostel has an extra dose of warmth and sweetness that smooths the edges between respective registers, and the 1 25/32" nut offers a spacious left hand experience.

Want to fingerpick Appalachian-style in dropped tunings? This D-18S turns into a fingerpicking cannon at the turn of a few tuner knobs, responding as easily to a lighter touch as an aggressive flatpick. Have we mentioned that this Dudenbostel has opened up beautifully?

1996 Dudenbostel D-18S -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This one's got the juice. Dry, woody Mahogany tone at its finest. A well-equipped guitar for many styles, but defiinitely great as a Blues machine." - Paul Heumiller

"While he's well-known for his mandolins, Lynn Dudenbostel makes really fine Martin-style acoustic guitars as well. This one is one of my favorite models with the slotted peghead and sloped shoulders. It speaks the way a dreadnought should and feels great." - Al Petteway
