Our ‘workhorse’ guitar, this Bravo model is headed to France! Comfortable, resonant (but feedback resistant), fast and ultra-balanced (both physically and sonically). The construction and attention to detail is as refined as our most expensive guitars, but this one is intended to be accessible to players and practical on the gig. Rich (sweet as) honey blonde finish with espresso neck, back and sides; 25″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut.
“I’d like to thank all the fans that voted for me last night at the Hot House Jazz Magazine awards! I have a lot of people that I call mentors in my life, and I would not be where I am without them. They took the time to show me and one day I’ll be passing down the same lessons. I’d like to congratulate Bria Skonberg Roy Haynes Rufus Reid & everyone else who was awarded! the house band- and the hostess bringing life/swing to the whole event Antoinette Montague.”
