ALL GROWN UP!

Andy_AndyEliteS1928Andy GraduationCongrats to Andy Paul, the namesake for our Andy Elite model! This week, he graduated from Savannah Country Day School and will soon be packing his bags for Emory University at Oxford.

S2302 AndyEliteNAT(BB)_FC2_030316Our Andy Elite Model (or “Andrew” for those of you recognizing the formality of the instrument) has a 12″ lower bout, 23″ scale. But Bob has selected his finest grades of cured European Maple for the back and sides, and European Spruce for the top. This is essentially a small version of our La Venezia.

We sold this beautiful natural Andy Elite yesterday from Bob’s Boutique. Check it out!

A very custom guitar with floral sound holes and inlays makes this a stunner…headed for Japan!
