The Parlok, Knoxville, TN

1993 J.P. Rushing dreadnought

$3,000

 

Highly ornate, well broken in example of master builder Johnny Rushing's work. This guitar was custom built for a customer in 1993 and therefore has some unusual appointments, including a dove inlay in the headstock (instead of the normal "R") and smaller doves on the fretboard. Otherwise it has D-45 style appointments, with abalone inlay around the sound hole and along the inside of the binding on the top. Beautiful rosewood back & sides look a lot like Brazilian, but Johnny tells us its "Brazilian hybrid". Some mild finish crazing indicates that this is an almost 20-year-old guitar, and its got that warm, open tone you just can't get from a new guitar.
