The Bristlecone is a medium-sized, 14 fret guitar well suited to fingerstyle playing. Its response is balanced over the entire fingerboard with crisp, resonant, basses and strong, round, trebles.
The example shown here features Ziricote back and sides and a European Spruce top, but other wood combinations are possible depending on the desired tonal outcome. The purflings, bindings rosette, and tuners are all standard appointments.
This particular instrument is sold, but I have a nearly identical one currently available. Please contact me for details.
