Description

Brand new and raring to go! This Preston Thompson DBA-45 is as beautiful to the eyes as it is to the ears, and plays handsomely to boot. Lovely, chocolate-dark Brazilian Rosewood body with Adirondack Spruce on top, Mahogany neck plus 1 3/4” nut, and stunning 45-style appointments throughout. That’s over 240” of Abalone on the top, back, and sides! These elements take a tremendous amount of time and skill to make come together at such a high level of quality. To date, the Preston Thompson team has only made five other 45-style guitars before this one, so this is very special to say the least. It’s is what a Bluegrass cannon should be: powerful, articulate, and rewarding.
