Mahogany Bursting Out Of the Roaring 20’s 

When we talk about classic guitars we often refer to 50’s and 60’s Les Paul’s, Strat’s and Tele’s mainly because this was when solid body guitars really became mainstream and were picked up by so many artists we still celebrate today. 
However its true to say that most decades had there shining moments (NO 70’s, NOT YOU… Bad 70’s).
Many forget the evolution of the acoustic guitar went through many changes prior to World War 2. As an example parlour/folk style guitars became more popular in the 20’s but as the decade came to a close the great depression began. 

What Barton Rouge hasn’t done is copy a group of guitars from the 20’s, what they have done instead is create a range inspired by instruments from the era … very clever. Similar to car manufacturers who create classic cars with reliable engines, electric windows and air conditioning Barton Rouge have used their expertise to provide the reliability, tones and overall quality at unbelievably low prices yet the style and feel from the 20’s.

This example comes in the beautiful “Mahogany Burst” finish and features a spruce top, mahogany sides and at current prices is around €169 … yet just listen to it, compare it against full fledge similar guitars which can fetch thousands. What do you think?
