This returning Custom Rockbridge Smeck (286/11) is one that I had built using my own woods back in 2011. The guitar remains in near mint condition and has developed a nice resonant voice through regular careful play. The basic design is a modified Radio Grande model using Adirondack spruce top and quilted Sapele (african mahogany) from my supply. Along with a firestripe pickguard, and a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, this instrument really has a 1930s era sound and feel. Best used with light gauge or bluegrass strings. This guitar can be used to support vocals or instrumentally with flat pick or finger style. One of my favorite examples of the Rockbridge Smeck models made at the time. With original TKL hard-shell case.
