This is not your average Dreadnought, all boom and no balance—the response is even from string to string and fret to fret. Don Musser, when he isn’t building guitars, is selling tonewood to luthiers, so it should come as no surprise that the woods are incredible on this Dread. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides paired with a German Spruce top, Flamed Maple bindings, scalloped nut and saddle. Pay close attention and you’ll see no detail is fudged, right down to how Don gracefully transitions the straight edges of the heelcap into the Flamed Maple bindings at the back.

The voice has excellent note clarity, and the bass response is warm, focused, and well-defined. The respective registers are well-balanced; it’s a seamless transition from bass runs to solos on the treble strings. It’s opened up handsomely in 20 years: there’s lots of energy under the hood that’s easy to access. The lower mids in particular have a breathy response that balances nicely between the bass and treble registers.

For the flatpicker who plays Bluegrass but wanders into Jazz territory and beyond, this is a unique piece that can easily keep up with your genre-bending arrangements.
