Thank you John...

The overall look is quite traditional as you say. But Bruce added a number of elements to the venerable single 0 concept.
  • He added a touch to body length to increase the body's volume,
  • Added a subtle 5/16" Manzer wedge for comfort,
  • His own top bracing scheme,
  • A long, 25.4" scale length, a smaller soundhole diameter with a sound port and
  • Cocobolo sapwood binding instead of ivoroid to classic Nazareth design.
I hope to audition some of your guitars in October at Woodstock...

Cool! I love the Coco sapwood appointments all around. Having played only a few of Bruce's guitars, I'm sure this one sings as well. Too bad it won't make it to Santa Barbara.

The Pear 0, if it doesn't sell at Vancouver, will be at Santa Barbara for the second time. This guitar is unique, beautiful, and sounds fantastic to me. It is literally half the price of Bob's and it is hard for me to understand why I still own it! Maybe I missed something about it, and if anyone knows what that is, I'm all ears.
