Fairbanks F-20 Gold Sparkle



We're excited to be stocking more guitars from Dale Fairbanks, and this F-20 built in the style of an old Gibson "Argentine Grey" L-2 has been turning heads in the shop ever since Dale dropped it off. This guitar features Mahogany back & sides, a Red Spruce top, hide glue construction, Madagascar Rosewood bridge & fingerboard, thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, 1 3/4" nut width and 24.9" SL. It's extremely light weight and incredibly fun to play, whether you're a blues fingerpicker, singer / songwriter or light strummer. Long story short: this is a very versatile, great sounding little guitar oozing tone and vibe. Click on over to the video tab and listen to the builder himself (and TME staffer, Andy Cambria) play the guitar! Priced with hard case.
