Not surprisingly, The Fretboard Journal's Jam Suite at Wintergrass 2012 was filled with some truly rare guitars. So when three 1937 instruments came through our door at once – a 1937 Martin D-18 and two 1937 Washburns that were previously featured in our pages – we couldn't resist having some fun with them.
Here is Kenny Smith, acclaimed flatpicker and two-time IBMA Guitarist of the Year winner, putting each guitar through its paces. We'll let you decide your favorite. We'd gladly take any of these 75 year old guitars.
