Shop built deep body 0-size, 12-fret in X-braced spruce/rosewood, 1 3/4” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, easy on the eyes, ears and fingers


It’s been awhile since offering up fresh shop built 0-size, 12-fret. I took this opportunity to compose a deep body version and added some Ablam accents to the mix. This guitar is a full 1” fatter at the lower bout than its conventional 0-size cousins. Other than the “C” shaped neck profile, there’s nothing much conventional about this parlor guitar. Guitars twice its size will have a hard time keeping up with its voice despite having a lower bout that only measures 13 1/8”.

SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret mahogany neck with slotted headstock, steel neck reinforcement, X-braced solid spruce top in natural finish, solid rosewood sides and back in natural finish, vintage tuning machines, “C” neck profile, rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge, bone nut, saddle and pins. Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 5/16“, Scale length: 25 5/8”, Upper bout: 9 1/2“, Lower Bout: 13 1/8”, Body length: 19”, Widest body depth: 5”, Overall length: 38 1/2”, Neck thickness at 1st fret: 13/16”, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 13/16”, Action: 1/8”, string gauge setup: D’addario EJ26 custom light gauge in standard tuning.

CONDITION: Solid condition with no issues. Mahogany neck assembly imported from old classical and retrofitted for steel string tuning machines.

SOUND: Versatile player that welcomes bare fingers, light strumming or flat picking. Very easy to play. Can get boomy with aggressive attack but just, plain wonderful when played with honest conviction.

PRICE: $999
