|2nd Lieutenant (Guitar)|
2nd Lieutenant appears alongside Dolce and Bass in all battles with them.
His normal physical attack is a slash with the sword. He also uses a set of powerful Special Attacks. Splintering Soul is a four hit attack at melee range with a powerful finishing blow that can also hit nearby characters. Power Soul is a fiery, single-strike attack that can hit all targets that are standing close together, including ones behind it. He may use Rising Power at the end of a turn to heal himself for 5700 HP and go into Burst status. Finally, he may use Guts to revive Bass for 14200 HP, or 26700 HP in the final battle with Dolce and her crew.

2nd Lieutenant/Guitar, despite being Dolce's secondary lieutenant, is definitely the more powerful of the two, carrying the lower stats of a Warrior Pirate opponent. In general, his attacks are easy to Guard against, but they can still be powerfully damaging if the Guard is missed, particularly if he is in Burst. His defense is the main problem, as weaker characters such as Polka may do zero damage with their normal attacks. Focus on hitting him with Special Attacks instead. Once both he and Bass are in critical, finish them off quickly. This will prevent them reviving each other. If the party is well-leveled, then they can try taking them on one at a time, but there is always the risk of revival so long as one is still standing.
- Splintering Soul - "Har!," "And the devil be done for the rest!" (Xbox 360)
- Rising Power - "That'll cost ya'! ... Yo ho ho!"
- Guts/Grit - "Drink!"
- He carries the appearance and same basic attack set as a Warrior Pirate.
- In the PlayStation 3 version of Eternal Sonata, the amount of EXP granted for defeating Dolce and her crew is reduced by around 7000 points from the Xbox 360 version. In all subsequent fights with them in the Xbox 360 version, 85000 EXP is granted for defeating them, but in the PS3 version, the amount remains similar to that of the first fight.
- All EXP, Gold and item drops listed are combined totals with Captain Dolce and Guitar (2nd Lieutenant).
