Description

Bruce Sexauer--a luthier completely at home with parlor-sized guitars. We have one of his FT-0-C "Companion Size" guitars in the shop today, with Bigleaf Maple back and sides and an Italian Spruce top. If you're at all interested in fingerstyle guitar, this is one to check out. The setup is perfect for Traditional Blues tunes, with a sweet, snappy tone and lots of volume, but the slightly longer neck (13 frets to the body) gives the strings a bit more play and warms up the tone. The highs are clean and bell-like, but don't dominate the instrument.

You'll be hard-pressed to find another parlor in this price range that has the responsiveness and balanced tone that this 2011 FT-0-C exudes. This guitar is in excellent condition and comes with the original Hoffee hardshell case.

The mids are very present and warm on this guitar, which really helps flesh out the sound. This little guitar packs a lot of volume, and is absolutely a dream to play. The setup lends itself to fast fingerstyle arrangements.
 
Great-sounding guitar with lots of punch and sweet highs that smaller guitars are known for. This is not a brittle sounding maple guitar at all. The tone is warm and pure.
