Jon’s 1959 D-28 and his 1953 000-28 conversion. The ’59 came from Bryan Sutton about ten years ago and can be heard on most of our concert footage and on our MFG CD. The 000 was obtained from noted luthier Steve Kovacik, (it had been re-topped with Adi and 1/4″ scalloped braces and converted to a 42-style guitar. Both of these are Jon’s favorites!!!!!!!!!!
