About This Listing

There are not many guitars that take my breath away, this one does. I have rarely heard such power and deep tone from a traditional OM guitar. 

The model:
If you're looking at this listing, then Bruce Sexauer probably needs no introduction. The FT-15 is an OM style guitar, modeled after early Martins. It has a incredible texture of sound, a bell like quality, but at the same time is rich and vocal. This is the single best-sounding Sexauer we've ever had - a masterpiece.

The builder:
Bruce is one of the greatest acoustic builders alive today, and this is one of his most fabulous and playable instruments. For this reason, his guitars command a $12K base price (with a several-years wait time). This specific build, including wood, hardware, and other upgrades would invoice closer to $14,000 USD.

Whether you flatpick, fingerstyle, or anything in between - this may be the ONLY guitar you need. It truly stands in a category of it's own across the board.

The guitar is in fabulous functional and cosmetic condition.

The only issues to speak of are a neck reset at birth (Bruce had to adjust the neck angle when originally building the guitar) and a couple of small cosmetic scruffs / tool marks are barely visible, along where the fingerboard meets the top. There are also some marks on the bridge pegs - barely noticeable, but could easily be replaced if need be.

I've gone ahead and uploaded a lot of photos of every conceivable imperfection on the instrument. Please take a look. It's in fabulous cosmetic and playing condition, with some very very minor signs of use.

The guitar looks incredible, sounds incredible, and feels incredible. This is the one.

Please reach out if you have any questions! LEON GUITARS is a Reverb Preferred Seller - so we can guarantee an easy and happy transaction. Thanks!
