I have been enthralled by Jack’s Ditson style guitars as the originals had a certain old world charm and in the latter years sounded rather good, especially with silk and steels. Their smaller size mean they could be played very comfortably with a quick response and an intimate tone.
My fate was sealed when I saw the 45 style replica pictured above. The little jewel of a guitar bewitched my eyes and senses and I began to plot a order from Jack!
We agreed on a set of specs which came very close to the originals with some modern amenites. They would have adjustable truss rods and also be X braced for light guage steel strings.
Jack has very kindly agreed to document the build process of a pair of Ditson style 1-45s: one in Brazilian rosewood and another in Acacia for us! So without further ado, here starts the build diary:
