Description

Want a guitar which is small enough to travel with, but as loud, rich, and dynamic as a full-sized guitar? Enter: the Sexauer Companion 0. If you close your eyes while playing it (and trust us, that's going to happen), you'd think a much larger instrument was making music in your lap than this little gem! Featuring Cocobolo Negro back and sides (a rare and desirable tonewood similar to Brazilian Rosewood) and a Carpathian Spruce top, the Companion 0 has amazing depth and projection, with a warm, expressive bass and trebles with an electric shimmer.And, as if Bruce's excellent construction methods and tonewood selection weren't enough, this guitar aso has a multiscale design with 25 3/4" bass and 25 1/4" on the treble to allow this smaller-scale guitar to handle lowered tunings like DADGAD without sounding cheap and tubby, and is easy on the hands. Lastly, the strange and beautiful Cocobolo Negro is a rarity in the back and sides department: Bruce himself claims to have only seen one or two such sets, and this one's coloration probably comes from a submerged log, so you could even call this "Sinker" Cocobolo Negro, and features a clean, bright tap tone.Protected by its Cedar Creek hardshell case, the Companion 0 is ready for the car, the bus, the train, the airplane--and will give you amazing tone and playability wherever your travels take you.

Bruce, you've outdone yourself! This Companion 0 is perfect for travel, or for the Parlor guitarist who wants a multiscale system in which to play lowered tunings without buzz and tubbiness.
 
Great little parlor guitar. Bruce Sexauer is one of the masters at building small-bodied guitars and they don't get any better than this to complete your collection.
