1978 Fylde Falstaff – £1999

NEW ARRIVAL  The Fylde Falstaff is loosely based on a Martin D35, in that it’s a dreadnought shape with a Spruce top and three piece Rosewood back and sides. What this does for the sound is add more bass, as the 3 piece back is stronger that the traditional 2 piece back, allowing the top bracing to be lighter and therefore resonate more. It has a deep, rich sound with plenty of attack, a full bass, clear mids and bright trebles, and with 42 years of play it has matured really well. It’s in good condition for it’s age, with a fair amount of playwear, the top has turned a lovely honey colour, and the three piece back has beautifully defined Rosewood grain. It’s in all original condition, has a comfortable playing action, and comes in a non original hard case.
