The 355 dreadnoughts are also available in Tobacco sunburst, Black and Natural satin colors as acoustic full-body instruments or with a cutaway with an enhanced pickup/pre-amp featuring an on-board tuner.

All 300 series dreadnoughts incorporate many special A+ feature and construction advantages that A+ instruments are known for and ship with a padded, black gig bag.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s.
