Description

Here's an exceptionally rare, all black Olson Dreadnought model. James confirmed that he's only built one or two of these gorgeous black guitars. This one is adorned with custom Abalone inlays including the full name 'Olson' on the headstock and a full top border, rosette and backstrip of Abalone as well. This beautifully maintained guitar has a stellar voice, clear and full of that Olson sparkle, but with a big Dread timbre that makes it a rare instrument capable of anything from fingerstyle to flatpicking and strumming. This is a singular and special guitar with a look that's all it's own. Includes a Calton Flight Case.

Let's face it, we all love a black guitar. The shine, the attitude... Makes the heart pitter, patter. This is one is stunning with it's Abalone appointments shining like the moon on a deep, dark night. I love it. But be sure to listen to the video, this one has serious tone that I truly love. Big low end, sparkling highs. Playing fingerstyle it sound like early James Taylor and it flatpicks beautifully as well. Versatility, collectibility and beauty all in one great Olson!
 
I've only seen one other Olson Dreadnought and this is the only black one I've seen. It was a custom order and as such is very rare. The neck feels great and the tone is even, with a nice intimate quality.
