The Sinfonietta has become our most prestigious model of Bob’s hand-made acoustic series. One look at the Bob’s Boutique page and you’ll see that they are very quickly snatched up by discriminating collectors. The Sinfonietta is a 16″ x 3″ deep, non-cutaway acoustic guitar with a symmetrical Benedetto tailpiece, and a 25″ scale. From there, Bob puts totally unique appointments and materials into every instrument. Different features have included oval holes, elongated oval holes, f-holes, exotic woods, traditional European woods, unique bindings and inlays, etc. This newest Sinfonietta is the first of its kind. Bob choose very old, heavily figured Big Leaf Maple for the back and sides – woods that have been in his reserve for many years. The top is equally select aged Sitka Spruce. The neck is rich mahogany, and the binding on the body, sound holes, neck and headstock is flame maple. Making this totally unique for a Sinfonietta (and making it the first one designed for performance in stage and in concert halls) is on on-board Fishman piezo pickup system with a Perfix Pro preamp and EQ. This Golden Period instrument has a stunning tonal quality.
