This gorgeous 000-12C, built by Julius Borges in the year 2000, is a beautifully made and classic sounding guitar, well-loved by everyone in the Nashville showroom. With Indian rosewood for the back and sides, and an Adirondack spruce top, you're instantly landed in the realm of vintage 000 tonality, with singing mids and fantastic response across the highs and mellow lows. Being 21 years old, the guitar has really opened up and allowed these wonderful woods to hone their voice. 

The mahogany neck with its ebony fretboard plays as smooth as they come. With a very comfortable profile and great action, it's effortless to coax the best out of this fine instrument. The Venetian cutaway gives you great access all the way through the neck, so even though the guitar has 12 frets to the body, there's no trouble diving past that into the dusty end of the fretboard. 

This guitar comes with strap button and K&K pickup installed. The underside of the top is signed by John Slobod. It does have some light finish crazing and one notable cosmetic ding in the top on the lower bout, but is otherwise is in very clean condition. Priced with its original hard case.
