Product Description

This fine New England builder came to our attention via Dakota Dave Hull, who raved enthusiastically about his two Fairbanks J-35s that he's been touring with. We've patterned this guitar after possibly the finest and rarest Gibson we've had, the 1929 Model B rosewood Trujo the only one to have ever shown up so far. It's an L-00 body with extremely light construction, similar to Kel Kroydon, S.S. Stewart and Gibson L-2 of the period. Other features include hot hide glue construction, bone nut, saddle & pins.

4/14/13: We just put on the 2nd set of strings - always a telling moment, since a brand new guitar needs instant break-in and it's usually not noticeable on its 1st set - they loose tone as the new guitar gains it. And this guitar passed this test with amazing colors! It has developed a deep, solid bottom end, while the high end is bright, fat, and especially sweet. This Fairbanks demonstrates how a new instrument can be a more than suitable replacement for a vintage one. In many ways, it can be a better instrument.
