Description

Yes, please! The last Dream Series we got from Mark Blanchard was a bombshell and sold almost immediately—and this one is likely to go just as quickly. It’s humbling to see such consistency in a builder’s work, with exquisite voicing for fingerstyle playing that focuses on note clarity and definition. This is Mark’s Sequoia body shape with a generous 16 inch lower bout, and here he’s upgraded it with a body wedge and arm bevel for ergonomics, a soundport in the upper bout, and a multiscale setup that’s perfect for everything from C tunings to Standard (26.25-25.25”). The Brazilian Rosewood back and sides come from our own secret stash, and Mark used a creamy European Spruce top to match.
This is a brand new guitar, but you wouldn’t believe that to hear it. The voice is rich, lively, wide open. And this is at year zero! It’s only going to get better from here, and it’s already so, so good.

The Dream Series is near and dear to my heart. We provided our old Brazilian Rosewood to Mark Blanchard, one of our favorite makers, and let him do his thing.
