Description

Don Wilson has been working in the shop of Wayne Henderson for some time. He builds just a few of his own guitars each year and this is the first we've seen. We are here to tell you it's a fine guitar with serious tone and great vintage vibe. This is a D-18 with a beautiful Shaded Top, Fossil Ivory nut and saddle and sporting a set of gold Waverly tuners with Snakewood buttons. This Wilson guitar has plenty of headroom and likes to be hit hard. The wide grain spruce top rings clear and the mahogany insures great projection. This is a wonderful bluegrass guitar.

For years I've heard about Don Wilson. Friends of our shop that also visit Wayne Henderson's shop have commented on his great workmanship. A few minutes on this guitar and you can hear the same wonderful vintage voice that Henderson guitar put forth. I love the sunburst on this one and the upgraded tuners look sharp. Great playability and serious tone!
 
This is the first D.L. Wilson guitar I've seen and played and I must say it is really great. The sound and playability are top notch and the sunburst is really well done. I think this guitar would make any fan of old Martin or Henderson guitars very happy.
