Baleno 14-Fret 0, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany, Cutaway - NEW - SOLD

(NEW) From his parlor to his 0 and 00, our friend Chuck Baleno knows how to get the most out of a small-bodied guitar.  Chuck's meticulous and scientific top voicing methods are legend around here, and though it's a cliché, we can truly say that his small guitars sound MUCH bigger than they should.  This little 14-fret 0 is pure dynamite, bringing major tone and versatility in a very compact package!

Creamy Adirondack spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck with traditional diamond volute and Baleno's latest generation modified V shape.  Soft cutaway for access to the top frets.  1 23/32" compensated nut which, along with the compensated saddle, makes for astounding intonation up and down the fingerboard.  String spacing is 2 1/4" at the saddle.  Short 24.9" scale length.  Elegant cosmetics include a custom marquetry rosette, rosewood binding and simple b/w/b top purfling.  Waverly tuners.  As if all of this weren't already jaw-dropping at this price point, Baleno uses hide glue construction on the top braces, and uses stainless steel frets standard, made to last a lifetime.  Guitar includes hard case and lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. 

Trust us, you're not the only person looking at this listing and thinking it's too good to be true!  Will you be the lucky owner of this incredible little guitar?
