This guitar was made by Fauquier County native Ben Padgett. His Model 1 sits in the Grand Auditorium to Jumbo shape range. It features Cocobolo back and sides, an Engelmann Spruce top, forward scalloped X bracing with lattice instead of tone bars, 1 3/4″ nut width, 25.5″ scale with a 13 fret neck and Cocobolo inlay. This guitar is extremely responsive with a full, balanced tone. It sounds great fingerpicked, flat picked or strummed. This guitar is slightly used with some signs of play wear. A hardshell TKL case is included. Ben can now be found working as the head luthier for Gallagher Guitars in Murfreesboro, TN.
