DHR Guitar is thrilled to announce that we are now a dealer for Preston Thompson Guitars http://pktguitars.com In my opinion, Thompson Guitars are among the finest flat top guitars world-wide. I have ordered six guitars from them. Three LH and three RH. The LH and RH models will be the same: a Dreadnought with AAAAA Brazilian back and sides and an Adirondack top, a OOO 12 fret with AAAAA Brazilian back and sides and an OM with AAAAA Brazilian back and sides and an Adirondack top. These will be the first ever left hand models and hence highly collectible.
