16-B Custom Birdseye

Serial #S2174

16-B Birdseye Antiqueburst! We have found it increasing more difficult S2174 16B Birdseye(BB) main picto locate Birdseye Maple suitable for carving backs for archtop guitars. The price has skyrocketed and much of the better woods go into the manufacture of furniture veneers. So this is indeed a rare instrument for us to produce for Bob’s Boutique.

This 16-B model includes a lovely Birdseye Maple two-piece matched back, with matching Birdseye sides and neck! The top is an old Sitka Spruce top we’ve been sitting on for years waiting for the right guitar (Birdseye maple is bright, so the character of the Sitka warms up the tone). It has lovely flamed European maple binding throughout, a unique burled maple faceplate and heel cap with turquoise recon-stone “inclusions” in the burl, a B-6 pickup and EPS Tailpiece (as on our Bravo Deluxe), and upgraded gold Gotoh Delta 510 tuners.
