Description

We've got another Tunnel 13 Gold Standard from Bruce and Matt Petros in the house! Number 22 in the series, this 2013 Petros GC has a sweet voice wrapped up in a gorgeous Walnut-and-Redwood package with Pearwood trim throughout. As you probably already know, the Redwood that Bruce and Matt have acquired for these guitars came from the Southern Pacific Railroad's Siskiyou Summit Tunnel #13, where they were originally railroad ties. With the characteristic warmth and balance of Redwood, plus the dry crackle of the Claro Walnut back and sides, this Tunnel 13 has a splendid, well-balanced voice with articulate lows and mids, making big chords sound rich and full with each string ringing clearly.
For both fingerstyle and flatpicking, the Gold Standard is comfortable and responsive--and the wider nut makes those big chords a cakewalk. Wrapped up in a Hoffee carbon fiber flight case, this powerhouse from Petros Guitars is your next favorite instrument.

We have always loved the Tunnel 13 model from Bruce and Matt Petros. It’s wonderful to build guitars with storied wood, and this great American story Of wood salvaged from the southern Pacific Railroad sounds as good as it looks. The tight grain is structurally perfect, and the voice is majestic and warm. The Claro Walnut here is among the best you’ll ever find, and makes this guitar very light but with a big, strong sound.
 
There is definitely something special about this wood. Every one of these guitars has a really nice tone. This one feels and sounds particularly good. I'm impressed with how low the action is and it still doesn't buzz with light gauge strings tuned to DADGAD.
