Wilborn WarHorse, Brazilian Rosewood & Adirondack Spruce - Pre-Owned
With a name like the WarHorse, you know you're in for a powerful large-bodied guitar, and Ben Wilborn's take on the dreadnought does not disappoint. Picking it up, the player will be surprised by the light weight, which is achieved in part by Ben's use of tall and narrow bracing inside. With tighter shoulders, a curvier lower bout, deep Florentine cutaway, and fan-fret design, this guitar has a decidedly modern look. But tonally, like many of Ben's guitars we've played, it straddles the modern and traditional worlds. The timeless pairing of a master-grade Adirondack spruce top with Brazilian rosewood back and sides make this a dream flatpicking guitar. It's got that high end crackle, and a warm, even bass and resonant body. But the current set-up makes it a breeze for fingerstyle as well, with a responsiveness and full-bodied tone that will satisfy players with a strong attack. Finishing touches include the side soundport, bevelled armrest, and curly sapele appointments.
This pre-owned model is in excellent condition.
