No one's challenging John Slobod's title as one of the masters of the traditional form, and here's why: this D-28 is a spitting image of its vintage predecessor, with a voice to melt the heart of anyone with ears to hear. Stupifying waves to the Brazilian Rosewood grain and a perfectly toned Adirondack Spruce top, what more could a Bluegrass picker ask for?

The neck profile feels familiar at the first touch, and this one recently came back from John's shop with a flawless setup which plays like butter melts. Fit and finish, similarly flawless. In fact, we're hard-pressed to find anything less than amazing with this Dread! It's got a few years under its belt and has opened up very nicely, but it's going to sound even better with a few more strums--if you're in the market for as vintage as you can get without actually travelling back in time (or taking out a second mortgage), this Circa D-28 is one of the best deals you'll find.

2007 Circa (John Slobod) D-28 -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Yet another example of John's expertise. The voice is delicious, fat and rich, and the trebles offer crystal clear sustain that really hangs in the air; you could probably hang your hat on it. Bravo, John." - Paul Heumiller

"You won't find any better version of the classic Golden Era herringbone Dreadnought anywhere. John Slobod has proven himself time and again and this guitar is yet another feather in his cap. What a beauty. " - Al Petteway
