Nixon Madagascar Rosewood OOO 12-fret
Exceptional NEW custom hand crafted Nixon OOO 12-fret guitar.
Here is what the builder had to say about this guitar:
"This is a very close copy of a 1930’s Martin 000, built from plans drawn by Martin expert Don McRostie. The only real differences are that it has an adjustable truss rod, and uses individual tuners rather than 3 on a plate. The peg head slots are also slightly wider (ever try changing strings on a vintage Martin slot head?). Body is Madagascar rosewood. [This exquisite tone wood has been in Luthier Jon Nixon’s stash for over 30 years]. Top is OLD GROWTH Adirondack spruce, acquired directly for luthier Ted Williams before his untimely passing. This has BAR FRETS, an authentic feature that even the Martin Custom shop can’t provide. Fingerboard and bridge are ebony Celluloid binding and trim Honduran mahogany neck Kluson Prestige 18/1 tuners Hide glue throughout Set dovetail neck High gloss nitro finish Bone nut and saddle Celluloid bridge pins 1 3/4 nut, 2 1/8 at 12 fret
One has to play this to appreciate what it is capable of. Sweet, articulate, with a wide dynamic range. A finger pickers delight, but can keep up with a D28 if flatpicked. The bar frets provide a unique tactile connection with the instruments vibrations. This is a unique, one of a kind instrument."
I don't believe I can add much to this as the builder's description and details are complete and succinct. With a hard shell case.
