From Tyler: “This is not standard but was necessary on this build. The back was thinner then normal to start, so in order to be able to tune to the frequency that I needed, I chose this bracing pattern to increase stiffness so that I had room to bring it down to my target.”
"Great instruments abound at Dream Guitars, each one exquisite with its own personality and soulfulness."
If you are part of the 11 Step Guitar Recovery program (one more guitar and you’ll be cured), then you will literally be in a waking dream when you visit Paul’s shop.
I have bought and sold guitars (and banjos) with Paul and I really appreciate his team’s honesty and knowledge.
I live close by so I have to be extra careful ’cause all I need is just one more
