    It’s not a new guitar, and it’s not “old” either as I keep all my guitars in perfect shape. So I’ll call it a Pristine Guitar. :D

    DGT Stoptail with what they called a “Sinker Mahogany” neck at that time. I think it’s called Dark Peruvian Mahogany these days. 53/10 on the neck, DGT pickup on the bridge. Off the charts resonance and tone. Love this guitar!

    Some eye candy to beautify the day!

    Ooooooo the Wildwood run! I played one of those years back and it rang like a piano. Great find!

    That’s a great looking guitar - love the idea of a Grissom stoptail!

    (Does that technically make it a DGST?)

    Beautiful guitar, regardless!

    When I had my koa one built, Tina wanted to call it a DGS, but I convinced her that sounded silly and she wrote it up as a DGT with a stoptail.
