Comments: I pulled this one out of the case (after our usual acclimation period) in the dead of Wisconsin winter, after a 2 week ship from Quebec, to find it perfectly in tune and in concert pitch. How can a guitar be that stable...unbelievable! The long and short of it is...this may be the best Dread I have ever played. Robin Boucher has somehow managed to capture everything you could ever want in a pre-war Martin D-28 and add more playability, and yes even more punch and volume. The golden honey colored top, and straight grained Rosewood set are sublime. AND ,OH what a sound...balanced, clear, and powerful with just the right amount of sweetness in the trebles.
