Details

This sensational instrument is a 00 from Australian-born, Canada-based luthier G.R. Bear. 

This 00 features a gorgeous set of highly figured Australian Blackwood for the back and sides along with a Lutz Spruce top with Lutz Carbon Falcate bracing.

The Mahogany neck features a Macassar Ebony fingerboard with a 12-fret neck join, but the Florentine cutaway offers excellent access to the upper frets. A modern approach sees the fretboard extension continue across the soundhole.

The guitar features a Padauk bridge while the rosette features Australian Blackwood  interspersed into Ebony. This theme is also mirrored in the guitar's backstrip, while Australian Blackwood also features on the front and back headstock overlays.

Tonally, the Grand 00 belies its size, with a real drive and chime, perfect for both fingerstyle and flatpicking.
