Description

Bozo guitars are extremely collectible and highly regarded for their wonderful tone. Bozo Podunavac was among the very first independent luthiers who began the current golden age of luthery. His instruments are used by many recording artists and coveted by collectors. This one comes from the personal collection of recording artist Steve Baughman and was previously owned by Larry Pattis as well. It is a real player's guitar carrying it's story in the form of dings, cracks and checks, but with tremendous tone, great playability and years of music still locked inside. Own a piece of guitar history...

If you've been searching for a superb vintage instrument that offers that elusive tone and has excellent playability, this is for you. You've likely heard of Bozo, but may never have seen one. They are spoken of with the highest regard in magazines and guitar forums and there's a very good reason. Tone... This guitar has it, big thunderous bass notes and crisp, cutting trebles. This is a superb sound for blues, rags, bluegrass or celtic, any music that requires power and clarity. The voice is reminiscent of the earliest Martin Dread but with more balance and definition. The classic combination of old, straight-grained Brazilian Rosewood and Adirondack in the hands of one of the great master luthiers of our time. This is special.
