This is Bob’s top of the line Flagship model guitar, the stuff of legend: The Cremona. Bob and his apprentices crafted this 18″ monster out of our most spectacularly flamed and sonically superior European curly maple, matched the sides, bound it with beautiful curly maple and capped it with a perfect piece of aged European spruce. The honey hue is art unto itself. Not achieved using stains or shading lacquer but rather a natural process of “tanning” the wood prior to applying the lacquer….it is nothing less than perfection! X-braced and totally acoustic, this instrument has a huge acoustic voice that, if it were a piano, would be a 9’6″ Bosendorfer! The Cremona has Bob’s traditional flared headstock, delicate mother-of-pearl ribbon inlay, exotic Amboyna burl faceplate, Snakewood tuning buttons, abalone side-dots, and ebony fitted tailpiece, bridge, fingerboard and fingerrest. Available with an S-6 floating pickup at no additional charge. Archtop Artistry and a piece of Italian-American heritage.
