Default Blazer and Henkes 12 Fret D-18

A fantastic example of what B&H can do. I love the tone but not the body size. The guitar is in like-new condition. I had the guitar re-fretted to remove the vintage nickel fret wire. It now has EVO 0.043" fret wire. The guitar was Plek'ed with about 0.006" of relief. The work was performed by Lewis Santer, who used to run Ervin Somogyi's training program and how apprenticed many years ago under TJ Thompson.

The guitar is in like-new condition, with the following exception: some of the clear coat chipped slightly where the fret tangs are inserted (as a result of the fret job).

$7,950 shipped and PayPaled. No trades.

Here's what I know about this guitar:

Body: 12 fret dreadnought
Top: Alpine spruce
Back and sides: Mahogany
Nut: 1 3/4"
Saddle: 2 5/16"
Neck: 1 piece mahogany, beefy profile with non-adjustable carbon rods
Tuners: Waverly

Beautiful Alpine spruce top. That 12-fretter has to have monster tone. Good luck!

I have a shadetop version of this possibly from the same batch. It is my one to grab if the house is on fire. There is no better and the price is certainly in line here. Best of the best!!

I am the original owner of this guitar. Received it directly from Willi. It is an absolute beast. I needed to downsize my collection or it would have been with me forever.

It is worth more than the asking price. Also, Juston is a great guy to deal with.

You cannot go wrong here.

I can only imagine how good this guitar is. I owned a 14-fret version and regret letting it go. Good 12-fret dreads are in a class by themselves IMHO, and I know the B & H is at the top of that class.

No affiliation with the seller--just my 2 cents.
