Introducing the BR-1060 Carter Stanley Memorial Blueridge Guitar! This version of Carter's most famous guitar represents the instrument he would of been playing until 1964. By this time, his 1950's D-28 with the standard size pickguard had already been customized to include the unmistakable hexagonal shaped fingerboard inlays made from abalone and the addition of two m-o-p dots located on the bridge. This special guitar was most certainly used by Carter to create some of his most legendary works. As with the BR-1060P, each guitar has the original "White Dove" peghead design of abalone and pearl, then inlaid with a rare signature in gold wire. Limited Edition, individually signed and numbered.
