86:- 860709- Paul’s “Dark Horse” Dreadnought. (2009)


The Dark Horse Dreadnought is for Paul Mah,graphic designer, singer/ songwriter and the man behind Goodbye Stereo.

This guitar has been designed by Paul, but construction is based very largely on the “Prototype” guitar and is very Martin-like in concept. This guitar uses a Master Grade Engelmann spruce top and best quality East Indian rosewood for back and sides. The neck is laminated swietenia mahogany. We’ve used Schaller machine heads for the slotted headstock and the pickup system is the LR Baggs M1 soundhole pickup through a Baggs Para acoustic DI box.

The resulting instrument really is sensational, both in appearance and sound quality, due in no small part to a little advice from friend and colleague David Churchill, clearly one of Australia’s foremost acoustic guitar builders…
