Description

Smooth as butter and sweet as sin, this 2000 Custom Dreadnought from Roy Noble is a sight for sore eyes (and sore hands!). Adirondack Spruce top, paired with a three-piece Cocobolo-and-Quilted-Maple back, lends this Dread profound clarity, and an easy richness in the lower and middle registers.

With frets freshly leveled, crowned, and polished by our very own repair staff, this Noble neck has a silk-smooth setup, and can offer an impressive amount of projection, even by Dreadnought standards, without the need for an aggressive attack. Flatpicked Bluegrass tunes are rich and creamy, or if Blues is more to your liking the snappy bass strings have plenty of heft to fill out your arrangements. Over 15 years old, this Noble has opened up nicely, and is only going to get better with time--if you're looking for that Dreadnought sound in a more easily playable package that can also handle delicate styles, this Noble Dread is just the thing.

I've only played a handful of Roy Noble's guitars, but I've been impressed every time. This one certainly lives up to its reputation with smooth action and a buttery low-end.
 
These don't come through all that often and I know that they are sought after. The guitar is destined to become a classic and maybe already has among Nashville guitarists. It's got the perfect tone for recording or playing on stage and the neck feels great.
