Description

We can only imagine the hundreds of hours that have been poured into this knockout 1997 Dreadnought from Wayne Henderson. Figured Mahogany and Appalachian Spruce, thistle headstock, weighing in at a scant 3lbs 13oz—exactly 20 years old, and still crooning with the best of them.


The voice is full of the woody crackle you’d expect from Mahogany, and the middle register is crunchy and well defined. The trebles cut but aren’t shrill, and the bass is lively but plays well with the other kids on the fretboard playground. The slim neck carve makes for quick and easy playability, and the Appalachian Spruce top is responsive enough for fingerpicking after you’ve worn through all your flatpicks.


And make no mistake, this Henderson Dread start making your other guitars jealous because you’ll be playing it so much. It’s already opened up handsomely, and the tone will only continue to improve. According to the owner, Wayne only had two sets of this beautifully Flamed Mahogany, and this is potentially the only set that Wayne used to build.


common mispellings: hendreson, hendersn, dreadnaught, dreadnot, mahagony, mahogony

Wayne's guitars are as legendary as himself. This dreadnought has some seriously beautiful Mahogany back and sides, and a sweet and opened up voice. You can always tell when a guitar's been played in, from the projection to the energetic tone. This Dread's got all that in spades.
