Description

The folks at Preston Thompson Guitars are building some of the finest traditional steel string guitars on the market today. Accordingly, we're quite excited to be able to offer one of their 000 masterpieces! This brand new, 2016 000-12BA Custom is a beast of a 000, with gorgeous "Shipwreck" Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides and Adirondack Spruce for the top. Between these awesome tonewoods and the 12-fret neck, this Thompson has a well-balanced voice that's easily adapted for variety of styles (and tunings).

The treble strings alone are worth the cost of this guitar: sweet, focused, with a pleasing warmth and haunting overtones. We put this 000 through a variety of modes, and were consistently impressed by the even response across all registers, with rich bass notes there to fill out the lush tone.

This guitar has an excellent string-to-string balance and responsiveness, even when played in DADF#AD or other altered tunings. The soft V neck profile is straight vintage, and gives the guitar a great play feel to complement the smooth setup and fresh frets.
 
Really nice 000 cutaway, one of my favorite models of guitar. The tone is crisp but with lots of punch underneath, perfectly suited for flatpicking or fingerpicking. And, the Brazilian rosewood is really special.
