Mahogany has a quick velocity of sound, relatively lightness of weight, and
noticeable midrange overtone attenuation. As a result, mahogany guitars have
their own sound. Warm, dry, woody, not particularly complex, but direct,
lively, and famously easy to record.
Mahogany guitars are often looked at as poor cousins of rosewood guitars,
but we politely disagree, dressing the Country Boy in classic appointments
such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell
binding and nickel Waverly tuners. We also consider it
worthy of the same diamond volute that we use on the back of our Vintage
Dreadnought peghead. In addition to selecting only the finest quartersawn
and matched South American mahogany backs and sides, the Country Boy
Dreadnought is appointed with an extra-premium sitka spruce top (Red
"Adirondack" Spruce is a popular option for this model)
When Ricky Skaggs suggested the name "Country Boy" for our mahogany dreadnought, we all fell on the floor. We still wonder where he got such a
great idea for a name!
