Number 85

This is a Dreadnaught guitar made of Brazilian rosewood and red spruce. it was commissioned by Mitch Roe of the Roe Family Band. Construction is very traditional with the early Martin "forward shifted" X bracing. The only departure from tradition is the cantilevered neck extension and bolt on neck, so changing the neck angle is easy.

This is a versatile instrument, capable of putting out that big Dreadnaught sound, but capable of delicacy and restraint also. Mitch plays it onstage regularly.
