BUXOM JUNIOR 6 ACOUSTIC GUITAR
If your sweet spot lies somewhere between Versoul’s ample-sized Buxom and its diminutive Baby Buxom models, odds are the Buxom 6 Junior is your perfect fit. Try it on for size: it looks almost like a classical guitar, but rest assured it’s a full-voiced steel string model, braced for business.
That’s why this approximately 00-sized instrument delivers such rich sound-- that, along with its selected European spruce top and curly maple back and sides. Players may also choose a selected red cedar top and East Indian rosewood back and sides.
Junior’s bolt-on neck is made of sturdy aspen-maple-aspen. There are 12 frets to the body, but the generous 25.4” or 26” scale keeps things from turning floppy if you tune down for open tunings. Fingerstyle players will love the wide spacing at the bridge and also the nut, where it’s 45 mm. The fingerboard and bridge are East Indian rosewood. Junior boasts balanced sound across the fingerboard and, given its similar size, would be an excellent entry point for classical guitarists wanting to explore the unique timbres offered by steel string guitars.
