Description

Wayne Henderson’s righthand man and talented luthier in his own right, Don Wilson has carved out a name for himself with gorgeous flattops and mandolins. We’ve got a special treat here: Don’s first shade top dread! This 2010 D.L. Wilson could win awards on the quality of its Brazilian Rosewood alone, but Don paired all that gorgeous grain with a shaded Adirondack Spruce top, Herringbone trim, and soft V neck for the complete package.


The bass response is characterized by a focused warmth; the mids and trebles play nicely with each other and flesh out the voice great note definition. This is a guitar which begs to be played, and is a challenge to put back down thanks to a slick setup and slim nut spacing.


Don Wilson manages to coax extra sweetness out of the trebles so as to keep the tone smooth and delicious. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better deal for a Brazilian Dreadnought of this calibre.


Don's been working with Wayne Henderson for years, and you can really hear it in the clarity of his guitars and their overall projection. This is a gorgeous shade top, and boasts some primo grade Brazilian Rosewood that makes it a steal at this price.
 
I thought this was a Henderson at first. It’s a great tribute to those golden era shade top Martins that are so hard to find these days.
