Description

Playing this one is an exercise in joy. Dake Traphagen brings the sensitivity of classical guitars to bear with his steel string builds—marrying responsiveness with power and clarity. This 2015 BRS 000 is a marvel. The treble strings have a sweet blooming overtone quality that’s engrossing, and pairs perfectly with a warm midrange and powerful bottom end. We love this Traphagen for fingerstyle in Open G, as much as we loved flatpicking jazz progressions back in Standard. It’s exceptionally versatile, and has a myriad of flavors depending on your attack. When we play this BRS 000, we’re reminded of the concept of a do-it-all guitar: so many builders strive to build guitars which can handle whatever the player throws at it, but only a handful like Dake Traphagen manage to pull it off. With this beauty in your hands, that’s exactly what you get. And we haven’t even talked specs! This one is upgraded with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and Carpathian Spruce on top for added power; French Polished for maximum resonance. 12 frets to the body and decked out with gorgeous Abalone trim, position markers, and rosette. The slotted headstock is outfitted with gold Waverly tuners, and the fretboard is rocking gold EVO frets for longevity.

There are certain classical makers who build steel string guitars with extreme expression. Dake Traphagen is one of those. I love his BRS 000 model. This one has it all. Great tone, clarity, and power.
