#5665. OMS 12 Fret Slot Head
with an Italian Spruce top and Curly Koa back and sides. Kate at Maple

the perfect. 1 3/4 nut with plenty of power in the 25.5 scale. Call our

Here's what Brian Wolf of Acoustic
Music.org says about this guitar:
the time it felt like the world was ending I started thinking
of the things I loved. There was my wife and children, my cat
and my old Martin 00-17. I was reminded of how the
simple ‘17’ series guitars issued in the late 20’s took
off around 1933, another time in our history when it felt like
the world might be ending. The 00-17 was a guitar of
lasting value at an amazing price. Well the world didn’t
end, and I’m not sure it will any time soon.
At winter NAMM this
year we tossed around the idea of a ‘Recovery’ model type
of guitar built in the tradition of the all mahogany guitars
of the 30’s. I sent Dana my 1944 00-17 and said, “make
us a guitar based in spirit of this guitar that you would be
Dana built us this guitar and it is everything we hoped for
with a few surprises, like sustain that goes on forever and a
damped down tubby bass that makes you dream of New
Orleans on a warm summer day."
Mahogany. 14 Fret , 25" scale. Tortoise
binding. To round out the vintage look: Ivoroid logo, dots,
Vintage style Waverly Tuners, and a fantastic price to
match the perfect simplicity of the design.
#5598. The D-150. Beautiful Adirondack and Brazilian. Triple
Bound Ivoroid purfle everywhere. Gold Waverly Tuners. Beautiful
Certified Fossil Ivory hand made bridge pins. Abalone rosette. If you would like to see
some really great close ups of this D-150, go to Mandolin Brothers'
listing. Right down to the matched peghead veneer this guitar is evidence
of the care and attention put on every detail of our guitars. What other
small shop can boast that the guy who has his name on the headstock is so
involved he actually picked out the head veneer ! That's micro-management
used for the good! Great pics: http://mandoweb.com/Instruments/Bourgeois-D-150+Brazilian+Rosewood/147.aspx
#4551 DB Sig OM / Madagascar and
Adirondack. Dana's Signature Herringbone & Rosette
with Curly Maple body binding. Fossil Ivory Squares
& Diamonds. Gold Waverly's, Brazilian RW headstock
veneer. If you want it call the
fine folks at in Takoma Park, MD, The
House of Musical Traditions.
