Pre-War Guitars came about because of their mutual deep passion for the magical tone of 1930s-era acoustic guitars. Although they had trod varying paths in building and repair, they soon discovered they shared a penchant for meticulous examination and documentation of these classic instruments. The next logical step was to bring this accumulated knowledge to bear on the luthier’s bench. The result are one-of-a-kind handmade guitars with a sound, look, and playability like no other.
The slope-shoulder: A favorite of many a famous songwriter or folksinger, but completely at home in the hands of a bluesman or bluegrasser as well. The model J is feather weight and responds to the fingerpicker’s touch as well as the flatpicker’s. It can whisper, and it can shout, you feel it moving the air around you. A particularly great guitar for the solo performer, but this one will be a perfect fit for any musical setting you can put it in.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
