002H 14-Fret T

Overview

002H 14-Fret TOur new 00 14-Fret series finds the sweet spot between small and mid-sized instruments while bringing to the table a distinctive voice and character all its own. This Traditional Series variation represents our vintage-inspired approach to voicing and construction, which brings out a strong fundamental tonality and dry articulation with warmer high-end response. The ultra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer and lightweight build provide added nuance and responsiveness, making for an exceptionally dynamic and versatile instrument that shines in a variety of playing styles.

Traditional Construction

T-Series guitars are constructed of all solid woods that are acquired, acclimated, and meticulously hand selected by master luthiers here at our shop.

Top Voicing

Each T-Series guitar features hand selected tone woods that are voiced to facilitate the warm rounded highs and present low mids that characterize the tonality of our Traditional series.

Ultra Thin Finish

The T-Series Nitrocellulose lacquer finish is sanded to an even thinner thickness than our standard instruments, allowing the natural qualities of the wood to shine.

Precision Tuning

Premium Waverly open-gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation with a vintage aesthetic.

Neck Profile

Our new Traditional neck profile is based on our existing Vintage Now dimensions but adds a more distinct neck taper and rounded fingerboard edges for a played-in feel.

Appointments

Featuring an amber lacquer toner along with unique wood purflings, rosettes and bridge pins, T-Series models have classic appointments to match their distinctive tone.

Playability

A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
