Description

The team at Preston Thompson Guitars have honed their craft to an exact science: the thought and passion that went into this 000 have yielded a guitar that's got it all. From the first glance to the last ringing note, this 000 exudes warmth and lively energy. The Adirondack Spruce top has been finished with a striking sunburst, and the rare "Shipwreck" Brazilian Rosewood back and sides are full of alluring figure in the grain. To read more about Thompson's supply of this gorgeous and historic wood, follow the link below. The 12-fret neck is a breeze to play, and its clean, crisp voice has a tendency to hang in the air for long seconds. Fingerpicking another guitar will never feel quite the same after a session with this Thompson 000--the easy playability and string-to-string balance make this the perfect companion for a variety of fingerstyle modes. The low-end is well-defined with lots of headroom, thanks to that gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood, with a top end that's got more pop and sizzle than your fingertips will know what to do with. Do yourself a favor and get one of these guitars into your hands, but be careful not to schedule anything for a few hours once you do: you might find that days have passed in a fog of hearty, muscular music.

I was blown away by this 000. Looks, tone, playability--it's got it all! The middle register has a mind of its own, and there are some sweet overtones in the trebles that you'll start to notice when the notes hang on the air with all that sustain. And talk about a story--salvaged from a shipwreck is one of the last places I'd expect to hear of Brazilian Rosewood coming from!
 
Simply one of the best and most beautifully constructed 000's I've ever seen or played. I couldn't put it down and seemed to play itself. Perfect.
