2003 Thompson T2

Serial # 120103. Luthier Ted Thompson quietly builds some of Canada's finest acoustic guitars in his British Columbia workshop. His instruments are simply appointed and highly refined and feature craftsmanship of the highest caliber. His lacquer finish is about the thinnest and most perfectly applied in the biz, and his guitars are about the best kept secret in the world of luthier-built instruments. Don't look for his website -- he doesn't have one, and with his low production there aren't ever too many of his guitars available.

The small-bodied T2 is about the size of a classical guitar, and with its 1-13/16" wide nut, and 12-fret neck joint, it's a steel string that would certainly find appeal with players who have a classical background. Its small size is combined with a light build, rosewood back and sides, and an Engelmann spruce top for a responsive, balanced and warm voice.

Maple bindings bordered by koa purflings, koa, rosewood and abalone rosette, bound ebony fingerboard with abalone dot inlays, 25.5" scale. Gold Sperzel tuning machines, ebony pins, Tusq nut.

The guitar is in excellent condition and is nicely set-up. There is one scratch of note on its top, but is otherwise free of playwear.

With original hardshell case.
