Preston Thompson D-MA Adirondack/Mahogany Dreadnought

 

 We're so pleased to have finally received our first Preston Thompson guitar....and what a guitar! Simply put, this is a dreadnought at its finest. Impeccable finish inside and out. Superb craftsmanship and playability. This is one terrific guitar!

Based on a 1937 Martin D28 once owned by the late Charles Sawtelle of the bluegrass band Hot Rize, the D-MA boasts an Adirondack spruce top, hand-carved, scalloped Adirondack braces, dovetail neck joint, hide-glue construction on the body and a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

About Preston Thompson Dreadnought Guitars

Preston Thompson Dreadnought models are all crafted to produce the tone and volume that the dreadnought guitar was originally designed to achieve. These are powerful instruments that, when needed, stand up to the volume of a mandolin, fiddle and banjo. They have the bass response that provides an almost full orchestral backing to vocals. Their mid-range response and bright trebles take flatpicking and lead playing to new levels of achievement.

These are traditional instruments and all models are based on the famous 1937 Herringbone Dreadnought, owned by the late, great Charles Sawtelle of the award winning bluegrass band, Hot Rize. All feature Red spruce (Adirondack) tops chosen for tap tone and stiffness, advanced X brace placement, hand graduated top thickness, pre-war hand carved scalloped braces, nitro-cellulose lacquer finishes and time tested design features such as dovetail neck joints.

It’s all about sound, and that is what the Thompson Dreadnought specializes in. Regardless of the model – mahogany, East Indian rosewood, Honduran rosewood or Brazilian rosewood, Thompson Dreadnoughts are built with the finest woods, materials and craftsmanship to deliver that sought after pre-war sound and playing feel.
