Fratello Emerald Pearl

Serial #S1441

This is one of our most prestigious and traditional models – the Fratello. 17″ lower bout, hand graduated European select spruce top, with European maple back and sides. A 25″ scale, block inlays, full size bound fingerrest, floating pickup with multiples of black/white binding throughout. This guitar is everything a jazz purist wants in an uncompromising full-size no-holds-bared jazz guitar. EXCEPT, this guitar is totally unique because Bob gave it an absolutely electrifying Emerald Pearl finish. While you think it might be easy to make this kind of finish – not so!!! This is a terribly unforgiving color, and there is no way to backtrack once you begin building up the perfectly applied and meticulously buffed high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Our finish guy is truly one of the best in the entire world and under Bob’s personal supervision he applied his magic to Bob’s handiwork to create an incredible stand-out archtop. (Our Cinnamon Pearl Fratello One-off never even made it to Bob’s Boutique. A guitarist visiting our shop for a tour scooped it up right out from under us!) This sister guitar (or brother, since it is a Fratello) probably won’t linger long. If you have a thing for the color green, and have always wanted to own the quintessential jazz guitar, don’t hesitate.
