Completed in February 2014, this powerful Dreadnought matches Bearclaw Sitka Spruce with Amazon Rosewood back and sides and a Ziricote fingerboard. A beautiful antique Brazilian Rosewood peghead veneer adorns the headstock and is complimented by Black Pearl Waverly tuners and a delicate MOP inlaid logo. The one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck has a hand-rubbed sunburst stain under a satin finished lacquer. The body is likewise finished with a smooth feeling satin lacquer and includes attractive curly maple bindings and trim and marquetry top purfling and back strip.

Based in the rugged Allegheny Mountains of north central West Virginia, Ryan Snyder was inspired to build his first instrument--an F-style mandolin--after losing a close friend and musical mentor to cancer in the winter of 2009. Snyder's passion for lutherie took hold and several more instrument builds soon followed. It wasn't long before local musicians started requesting custom instruments and Snyder Acoustic Works was born. Snyder Acoustic Works remains a one man operation focused on building fine acoustic steel string guitars reminiscent of the highly sought after instruments of the "pre-war" era.
