An absolutely beautiful acoustic guitar made in 1971 by highly esteemed luthier Dick Knight from Surrey, England. Knight is famously known for his custom builds played by the likes of David Gilmour, Paul McCartney, Pete Townsend and many more. This particular example was commissioned by renown Australian guitar collector John Hurlston for his personal use. As well as having a warm and resonant tone, the guitar features exquisitely detailed and ornate appointments as well as cuts of tonewoods selected for both sound and their aesthetic quality. A truly wonderful one-off, historic build.
