This model is a favorite because the sound is bolder and more mellow than most models and is rarely disappointing. We carry only the 1975-1977 vintage, those originally 21 chord and with rounded edges, all with spruce veneer tops and modern bracing.
The same instrument and description as the Appalachian 21 but with a factory installed magnetic pickup (DeArmond design) with 1/4' connector, tone, and volume controls. Red/orange chord cover - NO LONGER AVAILABLE. COVER WILL BE BLACK, AND PICTURE WILL BE UPDATED.
