The Retrospective 37 Series is our take on some of the classic pre-war American guitars manufactured in the 1930s. Series 37 guitars pay homage to perhaps the most iconic Era in the history of guitar Making. Having worked on and studied a large number of the original vintage guitars over the last 20 years, we set out to capture the essence of these incredible instruments and make it attainable for real players, not just wealthy collectors. The Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides and pre-war scalloped bracing deliver incredible projection and sustain, with a bell-like attack and rich, ringing overtones. Coupled with exceptional playability and top-notch build quality, this is everything we love about the acoustic guitar. We think you’ll love it too.

Available in O, OO, OOO, OM and Dreadnought shapes, with Slotted headstock versions too. The Retrospective 37 Series guitars feature period-correct appointments including grained ivoroid binding, herringbone purfling, black/white/rosette, ebony fingerboard and rosewood headstock overlay.

We offer these models in New or 'Aged' finish, both are Nitro Cellulose. The Aged finish has the classic checking in the lacquer and is made to look and feel like a pre-war guitar which has been looked after since it was bought.
