If there's one company that knows how to craft a mean vintage-inspired guitar, it's Adam Buchwald and his team at Iris Guitars in Burlington, VT (with none other than Dale Fairbanks responsible for Iris's enviable sunbursts). Their DF model is a powerhouse with incredible clarity and punch, and the Smeck variant accentuates the bass end by introducing a slightly deeper body. Don't let the size scare you, this enhanced dreadnought is lightly built (clocking in at 4.25lb) and extremely comfortable in the hands thanks to the 12-fret bridge placement. If all that wasn't enough, this particular instrument sports a gorgeous quilted mahogany back. One would be hard pressed to find an instrument so well-constructed at such a modest price, and Iris guitars are quickly becoming a TNAG shop favorite.
