Preston Thompson Guitars in Oregon continues to make inroads with bluegrass artists,winning them over with their close craftsmanship and attention to detail in vintage-style construction.
Today they are proud to offer this video of their latest endorser, Claire Lynch, demonstrating her most recent acquisition. She had them build her a guitar to replace a prized 00-18 from the ’40s that she let go some years ago. It was made with a small body but a full scale neck, using mahogany for the back and sides and an Adirondack spruce top.
Claire talks a bit about the Thompson, and plays and sings a bit in this video.
You can keep up with Claire online, and find out more about the Thompson guitars on their web site.
