What To Know
We sold this Fairbanks F-45 when it was new, back in 2019, and it's only gotten better! That's truly saying something, since these guitars are smashingly good right out of the case. There is no finer interpretation of a Banner-era slope D in the current guitarosphere. A Fairbanks F-45 channels the woody bark and high-mid chime we love in a slope dreadnought perfectly. And perhaps more importantly -- it channels the vibe and feel of one of those guitars. The Aged finish gives this instrument a huge, wide open sound alongside a looseness of response that'll have you thinking you're playing something 60 years old.
The overall condition of this guitar? As new? It's confusing to contemplate, since it was intentionally distressed when it was built. We can't spot any new blemishes, but we're not sure we'd able to find them even if pressed. The setup remains excellent, and unaltered from its state four years ago. Priced with its original Harptone hard case.
