This stunning Antiqueburst/Espresso Bambino with one of the last few 4oth anniversary inlays was added to Bob’s Boutique last week. Featuring laminate construction, double A-6 pickups, no sound holes and a small block under the bridge, the Bambino model is easily the most versatile of our archtop models.
The 14.5″ body and 1 11/16″ nut width are super comfortable. The Bambino can be either a great transition instrument for electric players looking to lean toward a jazz box or straight ahead players looking for better electric performance while maintaining the feel of an archtop. Contact Jackson Evans for more details.
