  • Comments: Another very special guitar from Josh House. The Adi/Honduran Mahogany combo is tried and true, and Josh's take on it is quite exceptional to say the least. This Slope is big and powerful, yet retains the classic House tone...even, balanced, and very modern. It always amazes me when I hear a new twist on an old theme that really works. That is exactly what this is...the soul of a vintage Gibson with a bit of a “super-charged” makeover. This guitar can do just about anything. I love the sound for Ragtime Fingerstyle, yet it works equally as well for Bluegrass Flatpicking.
