A few of the design features that contribute to the guitar’s sound and playability is the 12 fret neck joint, placing the bridge more in the center of guitar’s lower bout for efficient use of the soundboard. The slotted peg head allows increased string ramp over the nut as the strings wind onto the tuner post centered in the headstock. Both ends of the tuner post are also embedded into the guitar headstock – hence no wasted energy.
This guitar is built with a standard long 25.4” scale length (short scale length can be requested) with red spruce tops as standard but other woods may be substituted if desired. Whether Mahogany, East Indian Rosewood, Honduran Rosewood or Brazilian Rosewood, Thompson 12 Fret 000 guitars are built with the finest woods, materials and craftsmanship to deliver the true vintage tone and playability. A soft cutaway is also offered in the 000 12 Fret model.
