Wes Lambe and Ben Maschal started Pre-War Guitars in 2014. Master musicians have played instruments from Pre-War Guitars, a small North Carolina shop offering acoustic guitars made to look, sound, and feel like flattops of the 1930s and 1940s. These are not just big names, but players who care deeply about sound and feel. Tuttle is quoted on the company’s website, enthusing, “This is the best new guitar I have ever played,” as is Emmanuel, who raves, “You have exceeded my expectations . . . and they were high.
This guitar is modeled on a prewar Martin Herringbone D-28 and is the international model with heavy de-stressing. it plays beautifully and sounds amazing.
