Our Bravo Elite Model was Bob’s way of introducing the standard size and feel of our very popular 16″ Bravo model with a carved spruce top and highly figured maple back and sides. With a B-6 pickup he made it a gig-friendly guitar, and with the appointments of the La Venezia, he gave it the classic workmanship and ultra-high quality characteristics of our most expensive flagship model. Our initial thought was the La Venezia, Bravo Elite and Bambino Elite should be set aside for only the finest materials and the Violinburst finish would tie them together as siblings. But in finishing a fine guitar, like hand-graduating a top, the luthier often lets the wood gently guide the process. This instrument is a flawless and first-rate example of our Elite series and the appearance is a little more chocolate textured and therefore qualifies as a one-off color. This is an opportunity to purchase the sublime Bravo Elite in a texture that makes it unique in the world.
