The Fairbanks F-35 Advanced Jumbo is the guitar that'll make D-28 purists sit up and take note! Its hugely powerful low end and penetrating sound amongst a mix make it an ideal bluegrass guitar -- yes, you read that correctly. And putting it into drop-D tuning reveals another dimension of resonant clarity--it's incredibly fun to play behind a vocal, and loses nothing when capo'd higher up the fingerboard. This model features the Fairbanks "Aged Finish;" and while relic work can be a polarizing topic in the acoustic guitarosphere -- we're sold. Looks, vibe, and most importantly ... TONE (while scratches don't affect the sound, the thinness of this finish really does). Yes, this is a pre-owned guitar; but with a finish like this, we have to ask ourselves if there's any difference between new and "used." This wonderful guitar is priced with its original TKL case.
