Description

Livewire! We just took in a pair of Petros guitars that complement each other to a T: matching woods, but one comes in steel and the other in nylon. This here is the 2006 steel string FS Cutaway, in Pau Ferro Rosewood and Engelmann Spruce. The slightly wider neck is an absolute breeze to play, especially if you’re a fingerstylist who likes a roomy fretboard. 12 frets to the body, combined with a Venetian Cutaway, gives the tone added warmth and color in the mids without compromising the player’s access to those upper frets. An excellent candidate for altered tunings! We loved DADGAD and C# especially. And gorgeous Amboyna Burl appointments (and bridge!) to round out the package in elegance.

The FS model from Bruce Petros has long been one of my favorites. It’s the perfect body size for a balanced and articulated voice that can cover a lot of territory. The combination of a fan braced design, like a classical, with Bruce’s master approach to voicing create an inspiring and beautiful tone.
