About This Listing

I have just learned that Mr. Hoover is no longer offering torrified tops as an option.  It's my belief that this is one of very few of these ever.  Should I raise the price??  Actually going to lower it!  Motivated to sell so serious offers will be considered.  Thanks for looking.  

This is an incredible guitar.  Just some normal pickgaurd scratches. I can't describe it better than my friend Robinson at Soundpure in Durham, N.C.  Here's his write up on this exact guitar:

"My favorite dread in the shop, -by far-. All of the unique aspects of this guitar and the benefits they offer come right at you from the moment you lay hands on the D-12: light and thus highly resonant construction, dry, woody power and shimmering sustain from that extra headroom, artillery-like projection and presence from the slightly larger soundhole, effortless movement up and down a comfortably slim neck...everything about this is guitar is just spot on! I've never heard a sitka/mahogany combo with this level of tonal nuance and complexity. The obvious choice in terms of material for this guitar is flatpicking, fiery and flowery alike, but I had almost too good a time fingerpicking country blues, too! Easy playing and expressive enough to delight and encourage the beginning player, precise and powerful enough to satisfy the veteran performer."
