Arcara D1 Lefty (2015)

Out of Stock

It's not everyday we have an offering as nice as this for our left-handed customers. This pre-owned D1 from Maine-based luthier, Matthew Arcara, has been played but remains in very good condition. There are a few knicks and dings from regular playwear, and the original tuners have been swapped for the new distressed-finish Waverly machines. The benefit, of course, is that the next owner will reap the rewards of the first owner's efforts and receive a monster-sounding mahogany dreadnought that's well opened up and competitive with the best vintage guitars for depth of tone, volume and projection. Full-yet-comfortable vintage-style neck profile, and upgraded with a Brazilian Rosewood peghead veneer. Priced with Superior hard case.
