Description

Bruce Sexauer knows how to build a modern guitar with the energy and power of a prewar guitar. His years building 1920s and 30s inspired designs for Eric Schoenberg have given him great insight to building lightweight powerhouses. This 000-45 in Honduran Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce with surely satisfy the fingerpicking blues player, but the voice is also beautiful when you play gently.

The 45 style abalone trim on the top, sides and back is just stunning. The headstock is also adorned with a lovely torch and builder logo. Snowflakes adorn the bridge upon which sit Fossil Ivory pins. This one does have a lot of wear, but who can blame the previous owner for playing it live, we would do the same with this lovely Sexauer 000-45 guitar!

This one has a truly woody character and that wonderful energetic bass pump you feel in lightly braced old Martins. The trebles are clear, bright and punchy. This guitar is great for fingerpickin' blues and pretty enough to be a great stage guitar. But it won't break the bank as it has been played a bit. But it's solid and a superb player that has gorgeous appointments.
 
This guitar is true to the vintage styling it is inspired by. The straight grained Honduran rosewood is exceptional and the guitar definitely has the vintage vibe that the builder was going for. The originals of these guitars have gotten to be very hard to come by and very expensive. This is probably the closest thing you'll find to a vintage Martin 000-45 you'll find in this price range.
