Description

As breathtaking as the first morning of spring with its promise of the coming warmth of sunlight, our 2010 Petros Yellow Rose FS is a work of art fit to breathe new life into your compositions--and your collection. Plucked harmonics yield haunting overtones, and the trebles shimmer with a focused edge, but don't overpower the balance between the bass and middle registers, which are themselves expressive and rich. And how could the voice be any less resplendent? Petros blessed the Yellow Rose with gorgeous and rare Ceylon Satinwood for the back and sides, whose bee's wing figure gives the guitar a sun-kissed golden hue, and an Engelmann Spruce top to ensure the tone of this guitar is comprehensive, articulate, and inspirational. With an Alaskan Yellow Cedar neck, the rich warmth is amplified further, and when the creamy ochre color helps showcase Petros' complex rose inlays across the fretboard, rosette, truss rod cover, and tuner knobs.

Designed with the fingerstylist in mind, this FS Yellow Rose excels in lowered tunings, maintaining that elusive crispness despite the lowered string tension--thanks no doubt to that Engelmann Spruce top and the unflagging craftsmanship of Petros Guitars. If you're looking for a guitar that inspires as much for its appearance as its voice, your search is over: this rose is plucked for you.

This is one of the best Petros guitars I have played, and trust me, I've played many. It has such a vibrant tone! Put just a little energy into it and it gives it back ten-fold. Bruce really pulled out all the stops when he chose the woods for this guitar: Ceylon Satinwood is said to be even more rare than Brazilian Rosewood. When I tuned it to DADGAD--that's when the magic really kicked in. I'm used to smaller guitars losing their edge when played in lowered tunings, but the Yellow Rose remained crisp and responsive the entire time.
 
Such a beautifully-crafted small guitar with a small profile neck as well. A special guitar for both the fingerstylist and the collector.
