This is Brondel B3c- a 00 sized monster made entirely out of Port Orford Cedar- it has a mastergrade top, flamed back and sides and a really clean stiff piece for the neck. (read more about Port Orford Cedar here). It has a cutaway and a tilt neck system but most of all it was a wonderful voice- clear, powerful, responsive and yet with endless headroom. To boot, the fixtures and a adornments are all made in the US, the black walnut/ maple highlights are salvaged- this guitar has a super low carbon footprint and no forest was harmed. The ultimate green guitar!
