Fairchild Custom Built Dobros

Posted by Dobrotome on Monday, May 3, 2021

Howdy....Some folks had recently contacted me asking if I could produce MP3s for 

the three Fairchild Dobros I have post here at Marketplace. They are listed together and are maple guitars. One is a red colored quilted maple a second is a light coffee colored striped maple and the third is red colored maple with a unique decorated back.

I posted mp3s for each of them today, here at

I am also posting a description and measurement details regarding Ray Fairchild's Dobros.
