This Trenier Broadway was made by Bryant Trenier specifically to commemorate his 50th build, note the special inlay on the headstock.  This example carries on the tradition of a classic 1920s/1930s parallel-braced archtop guitar.  The spruce top is very lively and the guitar has a nice punch while also having the great tone Bryant is known for achieving.  The back is made of ridiculously heavily flamed maple, and the neck is 3-piece flamed maple with a medium C carve.

 

The playability is unquestionably great with smooth action and clear ringing notes all over the neck.  This guitar could perform equally well backing a band, backing a vocalist, or for solo or duet work.  Bryant is one of the exceptional builders of our time, particulary at tuning the woods of a guitar to excel.

 

The guitar comes with a floating Johnny Smith style pickup.  I believe its a Lollar, but I have not pulled the pickguard off to verify.
