Fairbanks F-45



Gorgeous in every way! This brand new F-45 from luthier Dale Fairbanks is our favorite old-Gibson-sstyle guitar that's out there right now. Dale's guitars have the vibe, tone and feel of a decades-old instrument, with the modern playability discerning players demand. Loads of volume, and the great woody, midrangey sound that makes for a perfect multi-use guitar. Whether you're a fingerpicker, flatpicker, old-time rhythm player, or whether you do it all just want one great guitar, a Fairbanks F-45 is an unbeatable value in the current landscape of handmade vintage-inspired guitars. Priced with hard case!
