This Carter Stanley tribute from Blueridge is among their top offerings concerning quality and workmanship!
The Blueridge BR-1060 Carter Stanley Memorial Guitar is based on the instrument as he played it after 1964. By 1964 his trusty 1950s D-28 had seen a lot of action (and abuse!) as his standard stage instrument. His famous thumb-and-finger picking style had worn down the finish and wood on both sides of the upper body bout around the soundhole, so he had a custom pickguard installed that covered the damage and protected his guitar from more harm. The Blueridge BR-1060 also has the hexagonal abalone fretboard inlays and two mother-of-pearl dots on the bridge Carter added prior to 1964. Additional Carter touches include the famous White Dove headstock inlay design crafted of fine abalone and pearl which is joined on this memorial-edition guitar with his signature inlaid in gold wire. It sounds and plays fantastic with that familiar deep bassy tone.
