Thompson OOO-12 MA
Preston Thompson 12 Fret 000 guitars are based on the exceptionally famous 1929 000 models. For years before the development of the dreadnought body style, the 12 fret 000 was the largest guitar available. To thompson, the 12 fret 000 is still one of the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing guitars ever created. The tone and versatility is unequaled. You can throw all the guitar adjectives at this one: sweet, responsive, loud, woody, lively, etc., and you’d still come up short in the true talents this model processes.
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 vibration.
Powerful yet subtle, warm but punchy, stylish yet conservative; this guitar is versatile and has it all! The beautiful sunburst finish gives a classy touch to a royally appointed guitar. The adirondack spruce top gives off tons of volume giving you unlimited headroom, and the mahogany back makes every note clear and concise with no unwanted boomy frequencies! If you're in the market for a smaller body guitar that can give you the versillity of 5 different guitars then your search is over!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Very Good Condition w/ light scratches throughout the top and dark burst, with a couple deeper scratches/dings on the back(see photos).
