The Barndance sounds like a sloped shoulder D should with all of the grunt,
honk and woodiness you'd expect from this classic design.
It sounds like the vintage slope D's, just more so; it's a devastating guitar.
Julius built the sloped D at the urging of his longtime friend and
country blues legend, Paul Geremia.
Paul lent Julius two 1930's J-35's to template from and to get a feel for.
Both Paul and guitar repair guru, Dan Erlewine, insisted that the
guitar must be built with the original short, 24¾", scale length.
The result is a powerhouse of an instrument.
Think you need a long scale to create a bonecrusher? Think again.
