I was fortunate to play this guitar recently; it has amazing tone, volume, punch, and playability without the large dreadnought size and weight.
I purchased several guitars from Alan, and he is a trusted friend now. Buy with confidence from this man!

Amazing guitar offered by an awesome seller.

You cannot go wrong with one of Bruce's creations, or with dealing with Alan.

This one has it all.

Can’t more highly recommend seller or guitar - fantastic! I have 2 of Bruces mini-Ds, and I have 2 of Bruces braz guitars, but I don’t have a braz mini-D - really wish I could do it!

Default Many thanks

Hey guys...thank you so much for all the kind words. I really appreciate it.

This is a really exceptional guitar and stands out in every way. I’ve had 30-40 guitars pass through my closet and this is one of only three that I have held on to since purchasing this in late 2015.

I bought this just before being packed up by Bruce to take on his road trip to Memphis. I agreed to allow him to take it swith him for the road trip.

Thumbs up

Amazing guitar from an awesome seller. When Alan is selling a long-time keeper, it's time to sit up and take notice!

Bruce Sexauer does such a great job with his builds, and this one is extra special. Great opportunity for someone!

I’ll consider a trade +cash.
With the right trade bait must be a reasonable offer.
