Matt Arcara has a fiercely loyal following in the Northeast, and if you attend any bluegrass festival you are bound to see a number of his instruments in some of the most capable hands in the industry. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host this stunning D2 with a European spruce top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Matt’s work is nothing short of flawless. Although his building is heavily steeped in the pre-war Martin tradition, subtle quality of life improvements such as a drop in saddle, EVO fretwire, and a sound port that make the ride that much more enjoyable. Tonally, this guitar is as crisp, clear, and powerful without sacrificing warmth and complexity. The peacock and feather dots were done by the fine folks at Aulson Inlay, adding a bit of visual delicacy to this monstrous sounding instrument. The condition is excellent with no noticeable signs of wear, and it was recently set up by Matt himself. For those of us who want it all, this is the perfect marriage of modern precision and traditional technique.
