The Bambino Deluxe has become one of our most popular models, only offered in the standard finishes Natural and Honey Blonde in order to show off the beautiful flamed maple tops. Because this is a laminated instrument, we occasionally find some exotic wood to laminate the visible veneer. The architecture of the guitar is otherwise unchanged, which insures the playability and feel in everything we have come to know as the Bambino Deluxe. In this case, we used a striking veneer of exotic Carpathian Elm Burl for the top with our standard (hot!) Espresso colored Maple back and sides. The Elm burl is finished in clear nitrocellulose lacquer, slightly shaded so the visible top really pops.
