Description

You've simply got to see and hear this one! And you should call now, because she won't be here long. This is Bruce Petros at the top of his game, having fun with a few different woods on one instrument. The Flamed Walnut alone would be worth the price of admission, but add a Redwood top and Butternut neck and away we go. The sound is big, warm, and toasty without losing any of the crispness you want in the highs. And you can play this baby as hard as you want and she won't fret out or get floppy. Fingerstyle, strumming, single lines—whatever—this guitar is why we love this business. Here is the full story from the Petros Website: Southern Pacific Railroad's Siskiyou Summit Tunnel 13 was built in the 1880's using virgin Redwood timbers harvested in Southwestern Oregon. These timbers witnessed the October 11, 1923 hold up of the SP Train 13 Gold Special, pulling 13 cars, by the DeAutremont brothers. Four men were killed in the robbery attempt. When these magnificent Redwood timbers were salvaged from this historic tunnel after a fire in 2004, Petros Guitars managed to acquire some of the nicer sections. When these diamonds in the rough were opened up, it was discovered to be exceptional, master-grade tone wood, air dried in this tunnel for more than 120 years. Paired with light weight, figured Claro Walnut from Oregon and a light weight Butternut neck from Wisconsin, this guitar is light as a feather (3 pounds, 14 ounces) with the resonance of a 120 year old guitar. After a century of silence, Petros Tunnel 13 Redwood guitars are giving voice to the remarkable Redwood of Tunnel 13.

OK, I'm beggin' you, somebody please buy this one so I'm not tempted. The voice of this one is magical, the Butternut neck is unique and gorgeous and the Tunnel 13 trim really gets me. It's awesome.
