It’s always a rare pleasure to run across a guitar from the late Don Wilson, a truly interesting guy who had a hand in helping Wayne Henderson build many of his fine instruments (you may notice their shared bridge design). If you’re not familiar with Don, check out the article in the Fretboard Journal that featured him along with Wayne, Rudie Blazer, and John Arnold. This D-28, #26, had it’s top signed by Don on September 23, 2009, and features an old-growth Appalachian Red spruce top, forward-shifted x bracing pattern, Brazilian rosewood back & sides, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge with through saddle, torch-style headstock inlay, and Waverly tuners. The guitar had a small crack that Don repaired himself on the bass side near the end block, and a slight center seam separation about an inch in length, probably from the changes in humidity between Don’s shop in Florida and the mountains of Virginia. 1.725” nut width, 2 3/16” spacing at the bridge. Recently set up by Ken Hooper, this guitar is ready for the next custodian to play and enjoy. Comes in a hardshell case.
