Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

I've got a new flat top, and I'm having some trouble finding out much about it.  It sat in my grandmother's closet for years and years without being touched by anyone.

 

I've got the hundred and thirty first Santa Cruz ever made - and that guitar is just too special to me to carry around with me anywhere, or to keep in my travel trailer home.  I just worry about it too much, as it's Brazilian rosewood. . . .and because people always think that it's a pre war D 28 when it's played.

 

So I inherited a Fender F 65 dreadnought, and I intend to play it a LOT, and use it to carry around, etc.

 

This guitar is a cannon!  It's got a very fine high grade spruce top, and is East Indian rosewood on it's back and sides.  It has some beautiful abalone binding all the way around the body, and on the rosette.

I can't for the life of me imagine that the back/sides would NOT be solid - but I've not been able to find a lot of info on this thing, or figure out what year it was made.

 

I'm here to tell you that if you want a very good D 28 copy that shouldn't cost you too much - then a Fender F 65 is a damn good one!

Please let me know if you know anything about these guitars - or have experience with them.

That's another link that is . . . .in a round about way, about my Fender F 65.

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
