Boucher Guitars recently added a new shape to its collection of hand-made acoustic guitars – the 000 12 Fret-To-Body (12FTB).
First shown at the 2012 NAMM show and now available through authorized Boucher dealers, this new model features a neck which meets the body at the 12th fret instead of the 14th. The 000 12FTB’s body is slightly larger than that of a traditional 000. The lower frequencies are enhanced as a result, making it an ideal choice for Paul Simon and Jethro Tull-inspired fingerpicking styles.
Its classical-style slotted headstock evokes a 1940s/50s aesthetic, and the neck’s 1 13/16” nut width and ‘V’ profile offer exceptional comfort.
Boucher offers the 000 12FTB shape in three versions:
STU-IN-000-12FTB (MSRP: $3,899)
Studio Series, with Signature Grade Adirondack Red Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back & sides
AVT-IN-000-12FTB (MSRP: $4,999) AVT Series, with Master Grade Adirondack Red Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back & sides
AVT-BN-000-12FTB (MSRP: $9,999) AVT Series, with Master Grade Adirondack Red Spruce top and Brazilian Rosewood back & sides
