Description

A 2013 custom Applegate FS model in the store--what more could you ask for? Featuring a remarkable set of Ziricote for the back and sides and a creamy Port Orford Cedar, this FS has a sonorous and complex voice. All across the guitar, supremely tasteful wood choices abound: Ziricote and Bocote laminations for the neck, Bocote bindings and radial rosette (with an inlaid interlocking Abalone pattern), and a Macassar Ebony bridge. With so much visually breathtaking beauty, the voice of the FS has some stiff competition for the attention of the player, were it not for the fact that the Port Orford Cedar imparts a sweet, opened up warmth and compliments the low-mid punch and controlled bass of the Ziricote. Fingerstylists, take note: this guitar can turn the simplest arrangements into complex pieces in a few minutes--imagine what it can do once you've played together for a few days!

I love Brian Applegate's guitars, and his FS model may very well be my current favorite. First things first, this guitar is a real show-stopper with it's out-of-the-ordinary wood choices. Even here at Dream Guitars we don't see many Ziricote necks, but after playing this one I'd like to see more builders reaching for it. Not only does it look great with the Bocote, but the added sustain it imparts is significant. An outstanding instrument in every way.
 
This guitar has a nice delicate quality to the sound that makes it a good choice for fingerstyle guitar playing.
