We absolutely LOVE the 000-X2E. This Auditorium sized model has a Sitka spruce top and figured mahogany pattern high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides. New mother-of-pearl pattern inlay on the rosette and fingerboard lend a richness to the 000-X2E, making it as impressive to look at as it is to play. With a Performing Artist neck, fingerboard, and bridge of select hardwood, the sound transfer of this model has been greatly improved. Great for the wanderers of the music world to take out on long road trips, hikes, camping excursions, or even across Middle Earth to destroy the one ring to rule them all! Now all that you have left to do is decide if you are Frodo or Sam Wise! Give us a call at the shop if you have any questions!
