Unique Preston Thompson 000-12 in amber Burst with the slotted headstock is a recreation of Preston’s late friend and Mentor Charles Sawtelle’s 000 Martin. She comes with classic design features that not only contribute the aesthetics of this beauty.
On the Preston Thompson 000-12 the bridge is placed more in the center of the lower bout thus making a more efficiënt use of the soundboard. The Honduran Mahogany neck has a nut width of 1 7/8 and 2 3/8” at the 12th fret. Nice fat but extremely well to play due to the carve (flat C-shape neck). The neck size contributes to the tone as well giving the guitar lots of sustain. The slotted headstock allows an increased string angle at the nut. This contributes to the stability of the string movement and thus the tone.
Finally, like the original 000 model, this Thompson is built with a 24.9” / 635mm scale length. Wood choices are master grade Adirondack spruce top with herringbone trim and an awesome set of Ziricote for the back and sides. Ziricote is a very special Rosewood species with any doubt, Ziricote is one of the most regarded woods due to its beauty and its acoustic attributes. Its grain and veins recreate figures like any other wood and some people even compare this wood with Brazilian Rosewood. To date the 12 fret 000 is still one of the most beautiful guitars ever created. The tone and versatility is unequaled. Current retail of this custom Thompson is almost 9.000 Euro. Her condition is NEAR MINT
