1991 Dake Traphagen Coltrane Cedar EIRW


I consider this guitar from Dake’s golden age of building.   She is super sweet, with tons of power and volume.  She plays effortlessly while commanding the room with her sweetness and inherent musicality.  She has honest playing wear, but not as much as you might think.  I’ve cleaned, polished and buffed the entire body, while I also dressed her frets.  Stringing her new, she really came to life.  The guitar is also a 656mm, but I had to measure it to be certain.  She didn’t play like a bigger scale, very comfortable.  One of the nicest sounding guitars that I’ve played in a while, and as you all know, nothing comes to my gallery without my express approval.  She’s a winner, hands down.



MP3 Audio – 200121-Dake Traphagen 1991 Coltrane Cedar EIRW– power and sweetness combines, giving the edge to the power side of the guitar.  Her clarity is exceptional as well.  Beautifully set up.  She’s definitely something special.
