Description

Julius Borges knows how to utilize every square inch. This 000 has an expansive voice that belies its petite proportions, with the perfect amount of balance and definition between the registers to make fingerstyle work absolutely sing. This gorgeous Borges is upgraded with arrow-striaght Madagascar Rosewood back and sides (looks strikingly like the best prewar BRW Martin stock) and Adirondack Spruce on top, fine herringbone trim, plus pyramid bridge for the classic flattop aesthetic. The setup is silky smooth and easy on the hands, with a 12-fret body join for extra warmth and a medium thick neck carve.

Julius Borges is highly regarded in the world of traditional style instruments. He's now retired so they are becoming scarce and hard to find as people tend to covet them.
