Description

We love Mark Blanchard’s work, hands down. And we love, even more, working with Mark on custom guitars for the shop—check out this first Dream Series Tamarack model for proof of the level of magic he’s capable of. Plus this beauty has opened up deliciously since that collaboration in 2008. The voice is wide awake and vibrant, with an expressive bottom end that dovetails into sweet mids and defined trebles. A fantastic fingerstyle guitar. The back and sides are from our personal DG stash of Brazilian Rosewood, which Mark paired a European Spruce soundboard to, plus a wedge body and arm rest for creature comforts. A slim soundport in the upper bout adds a little “me in the monitors” for the player, and gold EVO frets are in fine shape, even after 13 years of music.


Here's our original demo from when we had this baby new in 2013! https://youtu.be/b8Iot-pUj70

I am very proud of our Dream Series with Mark Blanchard. For this series we provided some of our private stash of Brazilian Rosewood, so there's even more depth and beauty to the voice of this Tamarack model.
 
A cream of the crop Banchard guitar. These guitars are among the top ten acoustics being made today and this one with it's premium wood choices and simple, elegant design is one of the best of its kind.
