Our Dirty Thirties Dust Bowl-inspired Single O is meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, it sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order guitars in the first half of the century, the Dirty Thirties Single O is the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours. All of our Dirty Thirties guitars start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fret board, with bone nut and saddle. We’ve finished each guitar with classic extra-large fret board dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and historic Recording King headstock. The Dirty Thirties series packs excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players.

For fun, I mounted a single coil pickup, again it sounds like a funky blues machine.
Update February 3, 2014:
The guitar "loosened up" as they say, and it was not good for the sound, which went from "open" to really kind of nowhere in terms of tone: boxy and "cardboardy". I took the strings off and glued a 3/8 inch wide by 5/8 inch tall by 4 or so inches piece of redwood I had around directly under the bridge plate and I am back in business. I am really glad that it worked! Perhaps it was just my guitar, perhaps the design has a top that is too thin for the bracing, or the bracing is not enough for the top..
Anyway,it sounds fun again. Like a guitar and not a toy.
