Description

A work of functional art. This 2007 Petros Celt is, simply put, a complete guitar. The voice is pianistically tuned, it excels in DADGAD as easy as Standard, the setup is glass-smooth, the fit-n-finish flawless. Intricate Celtic knot work across the entire guitar, from the engraft to the wings of the bridge, all the way to the very tuner buttons and truss rod cover.
Brazilian Rosewood is here paired with Italian Spruce on top for an easy balance between the rich bass thunder and the bell-like clarity of the mids and trebles. This Petros is perfect for fingerstyle. We can’t recommend it more highly.

I fell instantly in love with the Celt design when Bruce debuted it in 2007. As a fingerstyle player who adores Celtic music, it warms my heart just to look at this guitar. The amount of detail and the perfection of execution is astounding. The Celtic knot work is very sophisticated and paired nicely with Boxwood appointments and just the right amount of Abalone. While this one is worth the price of admission as a piece of art...you'll really appreciate it when you begin to play. The woods here are top notch old growth Brazilian, the straight-grained variety that every builder dreams of, and premium picture perfect Italian Spruce. This combination is ethereal and powerful. You can emote on this guitar in a variety of ways, from soft and sweet to strong and poignant. There is nothing missing in the voice, it's all there. This one is a spectacular guitar, one to cherish, one to hold, one to pass down to generations.
 
This is an amazing guitar. The combinations of this rare and beautiful Brazilian Rosewood with the Italian Spruce top make it sing. The artwork that Bruce has done on this instrument is really special and you won't find it's like anywhere else but on a Petros.
