What We Think

Condition Used, Excellent

While it may only be our 2nd guitar from the masterful David Newton by way of a previous owner, if you're looking for a killer, smallbody Blues machine, this will be the final stop on your journey.  Impossibly light, impossibly loud, impossibly crisp and clear from bass to treble--this is the kind of guitar that will ruin, RUIN you when it comes to what you expect from a 00 size (or a Maple b/s instrument of any size, for that matter).  And let's not skimp on the other stuff--that flat, 1 3/4" neck and nut are roomy enough for ragtime but fast enough for fleet-fingered forays up and down the neck.  And what a sight to behold from a purely cosmetic perspective: the star inlay on the peghead, the tortoise bridge pins, the french polish finish; heck, even the label in this thing looks good!

A final note: our guitar department head, Barrett Brooks, almost bought this guitar when it came in.  The reason he didn't?  His significant other declared it "too loud"!  And he typically plays a dreadnought!
