000-12 Fret

The 000-12 Fret Guitar

The 000-12 Fret is the link between the gut strung classical guitars and the modern steel string. Built with the lightness and responsiveness in every register which is typical of Borges guitars, the 000 has an expressive throatiness through its mid range that is hard to put into words. Borges' 000 model is a perfect fingerstyle instrument with a sound that harkens back to the model's classical past.
