ROASTED MAPLE READY FOR RECURVE

This custom 16-B, built with stunning roasted maple back and sides, has moved one step closer to Bob’s Boutique. After having a modified x-brace installed and being bound in maple, it has returned to Damon’s workbench for the carving of the recurve. After the neck is set, the guitar will move onto the finish department after which it will surely be off to some loving home.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOWARD!!!

It’s the boss’s birthday! If you see President/CEO Howard Paul today wish him a happy one (he loves Miner wine and Benedetto guitars too, btw).

If you aspire to be like Howard when you grow up, keep an eye out for this custom 16-B headed to Bob’s Boutique. It’s built to the same highly custom specifications as Howard’s personal guitar.

ONLY AN ELITE WILL DO

This gorgeous Bravo Elite was delivered last week to a very lucky guitar lover in Virginia!

The Bravo Elite is the flagship model in the 16″ family. It features all the compact comfort and gig-ability of our other 16″ models but with La Venezia-esque appointments, it really is the cream of the crop.

There is just something about that Violinburst finish!
