THE FIRST OF SEVERAL UNIQUE 16-B MODELS

This stunning 16-B is a new addition to Bob’s Boutique and is  available for immediate shipment!  It’s unique because the slightly asymmetrical 3-piece maple back was rough carved by Bob Benedetto at least eight years ago and set aside, only to be discovered and hand-graduated by Damon Mailand for this new instrument. The color and figure in the wood is so beautiful that we didn’t want to hide it with dark shading, so we added stunning natural sides, spruce top and two piece figured neck. 16″ x 2-1/2″ body, 25″ scale with 1-3/4″ nut, ebony appointments, A-6 gold pickup and hardware, and a stunning and powerful acoustic and electric voice.

TIME FOR TAYLOR AND HIS BRAVO

Flashing back to February of 2018 when Taylor Roberts performed a smashing solo set on his 7-String Bravo at Heartwood Soundstage in Gainesville, Florida. Rumor has it this gig (which shares a bill with Charlie Hunter) will be repeating itself on February 27th, 2019!
