1966 Henderson C-44 - Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Every so often we get to hold one of the real 'gems' of the guitar world. This is one such guitar. The 3rd guitar Wayne Henderson ever built from 1966. The tone is magical, rich and with power to spare. This guitar has been played but well cared for and it has many years and notes left in it. It is simply one of the best sounding dreads we've ever played and that fact that is the earliest Wayne Henderson guitar, not owned by Wayne, makes it a treasure for sure." - Paul Heumiller

"This is one of the more well-balanced Dreads I've played. It has some play wear on it, but it's also got the sound of an old guitar that's been played which cannot be replicated." - Al Petteway
