Description

This is the rarest Henderson guitar available today. This is the third ever Henderson guitar from 1966. Wayne Henderson owns #1 and #2, this is the very next #3. It is crafted from Indian Rosewood and Spruce and features unique appoinments Wayne only used on a few instruments, like the tapered Henderson logo and half moon inlays in abalone on the headstock and hexagonal fret markers also in abalone. These rare appointments and killer tone make this not only a most collectible, but also a most enjoyable guitar.

Every so often we get to hold one of the real 'gems' of the guitar world. This is one such guitar. The 3rd guitar Wayne Henderson ever built from 1966. The tone is magical, rich and with power to spare. This guitar has been played but well cared for and it has many years and notes left in it. It is simply one of the best sounding dreads we've ever played and that fact that is the earliest Wayne Henderson guitar, not owned by Wayne, makes it a treasure for sure.
 
This is one of the more well-balanced Dreads I've played. It has some play wear on it, but it's also got the sound of an old guitar that's been played which cannot be replicated.
