The award-winning bluegrass picker's first namesake dread will be constructed with sinker mahogany back and sides plus an Adirondack spruce top.

Sisters, OR (June 1, 2020) -- We are happy to announce that Molly Tuttle has helped design her own Signature Thompson guitar made out of Sinker mahogany and an Adirondack top with special appointments. Molly loves the sound of mahogany AND the Sinker set bring its own added tone to this already beautiful guitar.

This limited model includes the following special specs:

  • Sinker Mahogany back and sides
  • Two subtle palm leaves on the fretboard
  • Redwood in the rosette and fretboard markers
  • Tortoise bridge and end pins
  • Vintage brown sunburst
  • White purfling bound headstock and fretboard
  • Special Label signed by Molly – only 30 will be issued

Molly’s guitar is a Dreadnought model, but these specs can be added to a variety of models from 0000 to a Parlor Thompson.

Limited edition of only 30 guitars will be custom made for $7,850 retail. Contact for more information.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
