1976 Henderson Dreadnought, Walnut/Appalachian Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
Our latest Wayne Henderson also happens to be one of the first! #35 was built all the way back in 1976, when Wayne was still working out of Rugby, VA. This Dread has been lovingly played for countless hours: run your hand along the neck and feel how the years have smoothed till it shines. The original owner came to Wayne with some Walnut that he wanted to be used for a guitar. Wayne agreed, and put it to use for the back and sides on this dread, as well as the neck, making this Wayne’s first Walnut guitar! Appalachian Spruce on top, herringbone trim, a V neck with rounded tip, and a slim 1.625” nut for deft lefthand work.
A well-played-in dread is worth its weight in gold; even more so with a Henderson. There’s no telling how many hundreds of hours this guitar’s been singing for, but our repair team went over it with a fine-toothed comb to make sure everything was on the up and up. With that clean bill of health in mind, we’re offering this Henderson Dreadnought as an incredible deal. Not only has it already been broken in, the Walnut gives the guitar a crisp, focused projection and midrange punch that sets it apart from other Hendos.
