Description

Here’s a beauty that’s come back around: our first Dream Series 000-14BA from Preston Thompson is available from 2016! We commissioned this build with Brazilian Rosewood from our personal stash which is here paired with an Adirondack Spruce top and dark sunburst. 45-style backstrip, herringbone trim, soft V neck and an Abalone torch headstock inlay.
A powerhouse in standard tuning, this PKT 000-14BA also sounds ferocious in altered tuning fingerstyle pieces. 25.4" scale to keep those trebles crisp and tasty, and playability is buttery to boot.


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Petteway from when we first had this beauty in 2016: https://youtu.be/NIkCABhdtGE.

I came across five or six matching sets of this Brazilian to be built into various Dream Series guitars. Each has had a similar bell-like quality, and it's been fascinating to see how that manifests each time.
 
I'm somewhat prejudiced toward Preston Thompson guitars since I own one myself. He really knows how to achieve that "Golden Era" sound with his instruments.
