Pre War Style 12-fret 000 Guitar. This 12-fret slot head guitar is inspired by the early 12-fret Martin 000 style (circa 1930). The back and sides are Cocobolo rosewood with an Engelmann spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge, 1 3/4" neck width at the nut, 25.4" scale. It is hard to beat the beauty and performance of cocobolo rosewood — the back and sides of this guitar are beautiful. The 000 12-fret guitars is a wonderful model — it can be played with a pick, but it really shines when played fingerstyle. It is a little larger than an OM, but it is still smaller than a 14-fret dreadnought. It tends to have the treble/mid/bass balance of the OM, but with more volume (even when picked with fingers instead of a pick).
