Bourgeois 000 Country Boy – Heirloom Series
The 000 is identical in body size to the 14 fret OM, though with a short scale, 25” neck and a narrower, 1 23/32” width nut. A short scale length brings the nut a little closer to the player, slightly reduces string tension and improves ease of playability, though at the expense of modestly reduced single-note power and presence. Why do we offer such seemingly minute variations on a similar theme? Because the 14 fret 000 has been favored for generations as a go-to instrument for vocal accompaniment.
