A hoss of a Mahogany dreadnought. Bluegrass Cannon, Flatpicker’s Delight, call it what you want. We customized this TD-M dreadnought with handpicked tonewoods- old growth Belizean Sinker Mahogany back and sides with no stain, just the natural color, for the back and sides paired with torrefied (cooked) Adirondack Spruce top with a classic vibrant ambertone sunburst finish built with Hide Glue construction. TD-R/ D-28 style customized specs include the wood herringbone top trim and Ivoroid bindings, heelcap and wedge as well as Adirondack bracing and Sinker Mahogany overlay and neck with also no stain.
Old growth ‘Sinker’ Mahogany from Belize is amazing wood with a great story. Cut from logs harvested originally in the late 1800’s by the British in the rain forest of Belize, these premium logs were lost to the elements and rugged terrain for well over a century. The only way to get logs out from deep in the jungle to the shipping vessels was to float them down rivers. Occasionally an old growth log got stuck or sank and got buried in the mud. Some became a time capsule of tone wood, did not rot, and aged for over a century before they could be rescued by modern means. This wood has the old bone sound, serious vintage wood in a new build.
