By Tony Klassen of Chesterton, Indiana, a long time expert in the world of vintage guitars specializing in the great lesser known brands like Larson, Regal, Epiphone and early Gibson. He's been building replicas of these since the early 2000s and has developed a world-wide reputation as a master of the trade. This guitar is based on the Euphonon maple dreadaught by the Larson Brothers of Chicago in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Top is Adirondack spruce, back & sides are fancy flamed maple. It has a robust, rich tone with lots of clarity, punch and power. Condition is close to as-new.
