Japanese guitars are popular among players thanks to great quality and attention to detail. This Lincoln dreadnaught is a cool way to get a fancy flat top at a bargain price. Pretty cool for the cash. The top is spruce, maybe solid but I'm not sure. The back and sides are rosewood. The rosewood fingerboard features nice abalone inlays. Fancy binding and an abalone rosette. Pretty fancy for the price! A rosewood bridge keeps it rock solid. The finish is natural and is set off by a black pickguard. A cool guitar that will fool the folks in the back row into thinking your guitar was made in Nazareth, PA not Tokyo, Japan!

This flat top sounds and plays well for the bucks. It won't make you burn your pre war Herringbone for firewood this winter but it will stand up to and exceed the performance of most contemporary budget flat tops. Good action and nice feel. Condition wise, it shows the wear you would expect of a 30+ year old instrument. Moderate pick and clearcoat scratches, a few indents and dings and a finish chip on the edge of the headstock. No cracks or structural issues. Comes in a hardshell case. Also includes a Martin pick.

This is a cool guitar for the bucks that's as nice or nicer than many new budget guitars. It definitely has a hip vibe and really looks vintage. plus, it's had the benefit of several years of aging. Why buy a new Chinese guitar when you can get an older instrument with so much more vibe?
