The return of a treasured instrument and an American icon.

Like the original 1916 model, the Ditson Dreadnought 111 Acoustic Guitar features genuine mahogany back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, Brazilian rosewood headplate and binding, ebony pyramid bridge, ebony fingerboard with graduated position markers at the 5th, 7th, and 9th, frets and a 1-7/8" nut width. The exact details of Ditson's unique single ring wood rosette have been recreated. Special three-in-line Waverly tuners on the slotted headstock are true to the original look and feel. The original "Oliver Ditson Co., Boston, New york" stamp created in 1916 was retrieved from the Martin archives and used on the back of the headstock and centerstrip inside the guitar.
