Description

This is a wonderful vintage style small body guitar from John How. It is modeled after the old Oscar Schmidt guitars. The Mahogany body and X-Braced Mahogany top offer up a wonderful bark, this guitar is punchy with a perfect sound for Blues, rags and Old-Time music. John always adds wonderful details like the mustache bridge and his lovely shaded finish for vintage charm.

This How guitar is an excellent choice for the player seeking a truly vintage tone and vibe. The all-mahogany body is very punchy with strong mids that really project. Plus you get all that How style...
 
I love these little guitars. It's got that classic "woody" sound of the prewar instruments - just a joy to play.
