2014 McAlister Vintage Slope D Smeck-Alister Brazilian Rosewood/ Adirondack Spruce Sold
Just in to Cedar Rock is this McAlister Slope D Smeck-Alister (a copy of Jackson Browne’s pre war guitar) that has a beautiful set of Brazilian Rosewood and a Adirondack Spruce top. The guitar is ultra responsive, and is just as great playing fingerstyle as it is using a flatpick. It has a tight focused bass with a full midrange and sweet rich trebles. It is very comfortable to play for hours on end sith the slope shoulder design. It’s in excellent condition and comes with the original Ameritage hardshell case.
In 1998, Jackson Browne asked Roy McAlister to build an interpretation of his beloved pre-war Gibson Roy Smeck guitars. Jackson left Roy with two of his finest examples to study and capture the essence of these legendary instruments. What started as a custom commission for a guitar that no builder was offering at that time, resulted in one of McAlister Guitars most celebrated models and ignited a demand for this style guitar from high-end luthiers and boutique guitar companies. Jackson Browne has since retired his illustrious 30’s Smeck for the custom Brazilian rosewood McAlister ‘Smeck’, which he affectionately coined as the “Smeck-Alister.”
