Description

Rather than just make a gorgeous guitar for his 200th, Brian Applegate decided to lean into the spirit of experimentation and design with this FS/H hybrid model. With an arched back paired to a flat top, the body has more air to move without necessarily being a bigger guitar, so playability remains easy and familiar, and there’s still the crispness and attack we associate with a flattop design to round out the voice. Brian opted for Quilted Mahogany for the back and sides, pairing up with Adirondack Spruce on top for added stiffness and power, plus his classic five-ply neck in slim profile for stability and easy playing. A geometric rosette and Brazilian Rosewood bridge, plus Macassar Ebony fretboard, offer a tasteful and elegantly understated aesthetic.

We are honored that Brian Applegate asked us to present his 200th guitar to you, our clients here at Dream Guitars. Very few makers ever reach a milestone of 200 guitars and clearly Brian is celebrating his love for the craft wth this incredible instrument.
 
I love that Brian’s still experimenting and growing as a builder even after years in the field. This his 200th guitar features a unique hybrid arched back, flat top design that’s quick, clean, and powerful.
