In this video, Scott Ainslie plays his arrangement “The One Dime Blues” on a beautiful Froggy Bottom 14-fret grand concert Model M. This instrument features old-growth 5-A Brazilian rosewood from the 1920s and a German spruce top that was harvested in 1876, elegantly fitted with engraved mother-of-pearl inlay by Glenn Carson.
