Description

This Tippin Crescendo in gorgeous brick red Brazilian Rosewood and Moon Harvested European Spruce is, quite truly, a dream guitar - So much so that our own Grammy winning guitarist Al Petteway originally purchased it. We here at Dream Guitars are happy to make this, the very first Al Petteway Signature Series ever made, available to you. Bill Tippin is master luthier of the highest regard and he continually pushes himself to discover new design ideas that enhance the beauty, functionality and voice of his wonderful instruments. This instrument is representative of Bill at the top of his game, and when you listen to our studio recording you'll understand what we mean. It is built with Bill's best woods, and it is the very guitar used on our Youtube lessons by Al as well. The armrest bevel, beveled cutaway, and new heel design are each tastefully executed and stunning displays of Bill's unique craftsmanship. This is a rare gem of a guitar

This is very simply and honestly one of the top 10 guitars I've ever had the pleasure to hear and to play. Bill Tippin has long been a favorite of ours but this is just not fair, what an amazing tone and the design and craftsmanship are unparrallelled.
 
This was the prototype for the Tippin "Al Petteway" signature series so it holds a special place in my heart. This one is number 001 and my personal guitar is 002. It's still one of the best, if not the best, acoustic guitars I've ever played. With all of the extra bevels and heel carving, it's also one of the most comfortable guitars I've played. The woods are the very best that can be purchased for any guitar and Bill Tippin's workmanship has brought this one up to new levels that were unseen before this. I hope whoever gets this one can appreciate how much it meant to me and how special it is. There have been a few "Al Petteway" models built since this one, but none surpasses the quality of tone and workmanship of this one.
