2013 Dave King J45 – £1849
This is a fine example of a hand made British guitar of the highest quality – Dave King has become a highly regarded luthier, and his guitars have become very desirable for those ‘in the know’. With a Sitka Spruce top, Honduras Mahogany back and sides, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, and herringbone trim – this guitar looks as beautiful as it sounds. As a copy of the classic slope shouldered dreadnought, it has a big sound, rich and resonant with excellent sustain. The guitar has a deep, warm tone for strumming, with great definition and clarity when fingerpicking. It’s in excellent condition, the neck feels great and the action is very comfortable. The guitar has an active pickup with volume and tone controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
