Gorgeous custom Honduras mahogany / Sitka spruce Dart D14 dreadnought guitar

Here’s another custom one, for our friend Ryan. It’s a standard 14-fret dreadnought, with gorgeous Honduras mahogany and David’s usual old-growth Sitka spruce top. Ryan plans to be gigging regularly with this guitar, so we installed a K&K pickup and added some lightweight spruce braces along the inner sides for extra stiffness & crack prevention.
