Sweet, responsive, sonorous. Everyone in the shop agrees, that is how this 000-42 from Wayne Henderson can best be described. Henderson's prodigious gifts at lutherie have yielded a guitar of astounding clarity and dark, somber appointments, one which boasts Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an Appalachian Spruce top voiced to a gently enveloping timbre.
The ink-dark sunburst finish is a match for the complexity and depth of the guitar's voice, with Abalone and Grained Ivoroid trim for a delicate sparkle of light. In Henderson's hands, the Brazilian Rosewood and Appalachian Spruce have been reduced to a perfect thickness to produce the rolling, articulate, lush tone that this 000-42 pulls off so well. And what better way to warm up that lushness than a 12-fret neck? The highs are particularly sweet, and the middle register is clean and controlled in a way that fingerstylists yearn for: the balance is precise, and each string rings crystalline. This guitar comes with a Guardian hardshell case.

"This is a rare thing, indeed: an articulate 000 with the deep-bodied sound of a much beefier guitar. Wayne's lightweight build is robust, the sunburst dark and stormy, and the voice charged with depth and openness. DADGAD or lowered tuning enthusiasts will love how well this smalller-bodied guitar performs." - Paul Heumiller
" I don't remember playing a sunburst Henderson 000 before and I've only played one other 000 of his, and that one belonged to Peter Rowan. This instrument has great bass response with sweet highs and punchy mids. I really like this guitar." - Al Petteway
