When it comes to capturing the tone, look and feel of Golden Era guitars, Dale Fairbanks is no doubt one of the best. His F-20 is about as close as you can get to a '30s L-00 in a newly made guitar. While many vintage-inspired 00s featured mahogany and have a woody, boxy sound, this one has Brazilian rosewood sides, giving it incredible nuance and depth. Its voice stays focused and punchy, though, with a bit of growl and darkness in the low end. Even made with BRW, It's lightweight, and just a joy to play.

Includes its original hard shell case. Video demo showcases an identical previously sold model.
