Jim Merrill has spent the last 40 years meticulously studying, restoring, and building some of the most highly prized guitars in the world. All of his experience emanates from this beautiful C-28 with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce top.

While this C-28 has a robust Dreadnought body style, it maintains a shockingly lightweight feel; giving this guitar spectacular projection, punch, and note clarity. The subtle details of the Merrill C-28 give it a sense of modest beauty with its book-matched Brazilian rosewood back, notched diamond Mother Of Pearl inlays, and herringbone purfling. Jim Merrill’s knowledge of over a century of fine guitar building and lutherie methods shines on this ageless instrument. OHSC included.
