The 00-12 Fret is in all regards an ideal parlor guitar. It is lightly built with 1/4" X bracing that compliments the 14 1/8" lower bout perfectly. Getting a huge full bodied voice from such a small guitar is something Borges does so well. We even know a bluegrasser that plays a 00 that Julius built; he cuts through banjos and dreadnoughts with that little cannon.
