Description

Bruce Sexauer’s touch brings tonewood to life in a way only Bruce can. This brand new FT-16-C “Penngrove” model is in its own category of flattop, outfitted with a wedge body, multiscale fretboard, oil varnish finish, and gorgeous woods to boot. Panama Rosewood (D. tucurensis) back and sides with Adirondack Spruce on top, and a Honduran Mahogany neck. The Penngrove weighs in at a trim 3lbs 14oz, and plays like grass-fed butter; it’s a dream machine for a wide range of tunings and attacks. We really appreciate the even response and note separation between the registers, which lets big chords ring out with clarity and definition.

I always enjoy getting a new guitar in from Bruce Sexauer. He’s one of the builders who has a body energy and responsiveness that’s hard to match.
