As the name implies, the Pretender Model assumes the role of a guitar much larger than it is. So, for everyone who’s played a 1930’s Jumbo and was amazed by the tone but discouraged by the size…this is for you. Vintage 30’s tone and aesthetic create the illusion that this guitar is something other than a contemporary solution to the age old problem of full body Jumbo tone in a mid size, player friendly guitar. When this model debuted at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival in August 2011, John Thomas of Fretboard Journal magazine placed the Pretender Model as his top pick of the show. 


This design was three years in the making and inspired by a client whose large 1930’s Jumbo size guitars have become increasingly adverse to shoulder pain and the ability to comfortably play.  The Pretender Model has proven to be a welcome solution. A 13 fret neck/body join places the bridge in the lower bout to produce the large, rounder tone characteristic of the guitars it emulates. The Pretender model comes standard with mahogany back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, short 24.9” scale  and vintage 30’s style sunburst and pickguard, but it can certainly be optioned to suit the preferences of any player.
