Bourgeois 000 Vintage – Aged Tone Italian Spruce & Ziricote

Serial Number: 10417
Weight: 4 lbs 12 oz

The 000 is identical in body size to the 14 fret OM, though with a short scale, 25” neck and a  1 3/4” width nut. A short scale length brings the nut a little closer to the player, slightly reduces string tension and improves ease of playability, though at the expense of modestly reduced single-note power and presence. Why do we offer such seemingly minute variations on a similar theme? Because the 14 fret 000 has been favored for generations as a go-to instrument for vocal accompaniment.
