A division of Circle Strings in Burlington, Vermont, Iris Guitar Company is a small team of highly-skilled and seasoned luthiers who are dedicated to building modern instruments that capture vintage-inspired tone and aesthetics. Iris guitars are handmade using a combination of state of the art techniques and old-world craftsmanship.

The Iris DF Smeck is based on the classic Roy Smeck design. This is a big 12-fret dreadnought with a 25" scale. Like the DF, the DF Smeck is wide across the lower bout—16-1/4" to be exact. And its body is deep, too—4-5/8" at the end pin! This guitar is designed to sound monstrous, and oh boy does it deliver!

This DF Smeck (#949) features a natural finish, an Adirondack Top, a slotted headstock, a Firestripe pickguard, and a 1-3/4" nut width. It is a powerful dreadnought, and the 12-fret design helps to tighten the bass and give it a more open sound. It is crisp and clear with nice balance. The Adirondack is well worth the upgrade, especially because this guitar is not lacking in detailed treble content. Even though you can't hear it, we think the Firestripe pickguard is absolutely necessary. Just enough flair to set this one off!
