The MauryThe Maury guitar, named after a significant whitewater river in Virginia, is a dreadnaught. The waist is pulled in to take out some of the boominess that inhabits a true dreadnaught. The fundamental remains strong, and overall the guitar sounds more balanced. (The Dreaded Maury model is a true dreadnaught with a fat waist.) Unless otherwise specified, these have a 25.4" scale length and 1 3/4" nut width. The body is 19 3/4" long and 15 1/2" wide at the lower bout. They are big and loud with a deep sound.
This model is roughly the size of a dreadnaught. The waist is a bit more pinched than a typical dread to remove the boominess that affects many dreads.
A true dreadnaught in size and shape.
|114 - Persimmon back and sides. Engelmann top.
Laskin armrest. 24.9" scale.
Bright and warm at the same time. And, it's loud! A real pleasure to play. I am getting really fond of the sound of persimmon.
|35- East Indian Rosewood Back and sides. the sound
you expect from a Rosewood guitar, only more of it.
|153 - A true dread. East Indian Rosewood back
and sides. Khaya (African Mahogany) neck, Adirondack Spruce
top. Macassar Ebony fingerboard, bridge, and peghead veneer.
This was built to be a true Bluegrass guitar. Unlike all of my others, it will accept medium strings (although it will have a warmer tone with light gauge). With a bluegrass string set on it, played with a pick, it is louder than I can sing over. The Adirondack top will take a bit of playing to break into its final voice, but this is a powerful guitar.
