It’s a rare guitar made in a small workshop in Hinsdale, New Hampshire in the 1960’s and 70’s, less than 5300 were ever made before a second fire forced them out of business in the early ‘80s. You may not have heard of them, but they were owned and played by many musicians during that time. Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Jackson Brown. Pierre Bensusan were among that number, plus Paul Simon who used one as his recording guitar for several years.
