Bambino Au Naturale! Here is a standard Bambino Model with a non-standard top: clear and even enough to constitute a natural translucent finish! Our very stringent wood categorization dictates that the most aesthetically-pure materials are set aside for our more deluxe instruments. It’s a matter of limited supply. So Bambino and Bravo models are mostly relegated to beautiful (but non-translucent) finishes like Antiqueburst, Opulent Brown, Espresso, etc. Bob recently set aside two “deluxe” plain maple tops specifically for a natural top Bravo and Bambino Models. This stunningly simple example is the resulting Bambino.
