Ralph Bown crafts beautiful guitars out of his shop in York, England that have fallen into the worthy hands of players like John Renbourn and Martin Simpson. One of the more reclusive guitar builders of this age, there's damn little one can discover about him other than that, occasionally, one of his guitars goes up for sale and gets snatched up in an instant. If his normal 6-strings are that rare, what'll the guitar buying world think of this D Series Baritone? Exceptional Brazilian rosewood, European spruce, and Bown's attuned sense of form and function help elevate this glorious baritone into the sublime.
