The 000DB is my full-sized offering and has become the flagship acoustic of my range. It feels like somewhat of a behemoth when you first pick it up but you soon get used to it and get to know it as a standard sized guitar. Think of it as a dreadnought with tighter curves and better tone and you’ll be on the right track. Delicate yet ferocious, this guitar is the standard from which everything else i build has been taken. A lot of work has gone into the development of the 000DB bracing pattern, and i am happy with what i have accomplished.

It is a full depth (124mm) body in the lower bout, meaning it has superb projection and sustain when driven, while still being tonally delicate enough for fingerstyle. The tone is well balanced, while still having great individual note definition. If left unspecified i will brace my acoustics to be good ‘all rounders’ so they still sound great being strummed or plucked in a percussive fingerstyle. Custom bracing/Sound manipulation is available – please just specify your particular playing style when ordering and i will brace the instrument around your particular needs.

There are multiple build options available including cutaways, arm bevels, sound ports, custom inlay work, slotted headstocks etc..

Lefties are available at no extra charge. Please check the acoustic order form for a full (and fairly extensive) list of available timbers.
