Description

Here we have a Running Dog "Ought 3" model in Figured Bubinga and Adirondack Spruce. When we we first took this guitar from the case we were stunned by the figured Bubinga, it's gorgeous, and it is hard to believe that it isn't used more often as a back and side wood. Tonally the Bubinga imparts a crispness to the tone that rivals a good set of rosewood. Paired with the creamy Adirondack top, this guitar has plenty of headroom to be driven hard, but it shows its true warm and rounded character when fingerpicked.

This one is just incredibly fun to play. It has so much character from the tone to the appointments. I enjoyed it most while fingerpicking, but it is more than willing to respond to someone really digging in and going for that big tone.
 
This is a great guitar with lots of character and punch. It feels great and I would recommend it as an all-round guitar that works particularly well for fingerstyle.
