Hand built in a small-shop setting in Burlington, Vermont, Iris Guitars offer exceptional tone and playability, vintage-tinged designs and unique detailing, solid tonewoods, and nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

The DF Smeck is the only regular production deep-body 12 fret dreadnought model being made today. It is modeled after Gibson’s Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe Hawaiian models built in 1934 and 1935, but features modern neck carve and bridge string spacing. The DF Smeck has more air volume inside its body than just about any other guitar being made, and as such has more bass end presence and breathy warmth than all the rest, too. It’s awash with dark woody resonance and is amazingly open and responsive too.

A big guitar with a lot of real estate to its spruce top, a stylish 30’s Ray Whitley-inspired firestripe pickguard, ivoroid bindings and sunburst top finish. Three-on-a-plate Golden Age open geared tuners, and bold Iris headstock logo.

Round neck with a full feeling C carve, 16” fingerboard radius, and a 1-3/4” nut width. Bone nut and saddle, 25” scale, 2-7/32” string spread at the bridge. Katalox fingerboard and bridge.

With TKL hardshell case
