Description

The goal of all of our Dream Series Limited Editions is very simple. We ask the luthiers to build there very best guitars and allow them the freedom to do it. This Mark Blanchard Dream Series Tamarack is a wonderful example of what can happen. Premium Old, Growth Brazilian Rosewood shaped into the Manzer Wedge Body, a perfect European Spruce top voiced to perfection and the first ever multiscale instrument from Mark Blanchard! We asked for a 25"-26" fan on this one which makes the versatile Tamarack design even more so. This combination of scales is perfect for moving between Standard, DADGAD and Alternate Tunings, plus you get improved intonation and feel all the time. To complete this amazing instrument Mark Blanchard added a soundport and his famous ComfyCorner Armrest.

We cherish the opportunity to work with builders in a way that allows them to express their craft at the highest level. For this Dream Series Blanchard Tamarack guitar I asked Mark to try his first ever multiscale guitar and he happily accepted. I've become a huge fan of multiscale guitars because they provide more versatility in tunings, but also more even tension and improved intonation regardless of the tuning. For example it expands this already versatile body shape from Mark to the point where you can absolutely do everything you can dream up on a guitar. Standard tuning down to Low C, fingerstyle or strum, quiet or loud. It does it all. Plus the lucky owner of this guitar will have the very first multiscale guitar Mark Blanchard ever made.
 
This is one of the best sounding guitars I've played. Every Blanchard stands out in the crowd, especially for fingerstyle, but this Dream Series is unsurpassed for tone a playability.
