Description

Several years ago we hosted fingerstylist extraordinaire Pete Huttlinger for a concert, and while he was here we spent some time with his Bozung J guitar. After the show, we immediately understood why so many of our customers were telling us about Chris Bozung's CB guitars. Chris builds a wonderful guitar in the traditional style, with a clear, articulate voice that's full and powerful. We asked him to give this one an old fashioned sunburst, bound headstock, and to dress it up like it was going to the prom.

The Brazilian Rosewood here is old growth and top notch, salvaged from an old beam in Brazil, and the top is premium Adirondack Spruce. The soft V neck is insanely comfortable; the bass strings have enormous depth and clarity; lesser Dreadnoughts this Bozung eats for breakfast. We found strummed chords to be teeming with life, and flatpicked solos on the treble strings were fat and juicy (even flubbed notes sound great on this J).

We originally custom ordered this beauty after seeing Pete Huttlinger's Bozung. Chris outdid himself on this one! It's breathtakingly beautiful and sounds as good as it looks. The Brazilian is top notch and paired here with Adirondack it has that roaring pre-war sound. It's versatile enough for fingerstyle or flatpicking and we gave it wider spacings so you can do both well. This is a stunning guitar, and I'm happy it made its way back to us again--it's opened up very well since we originally sold it in 2007.
 
This is a great tribute to one of Gibson's best vintage guitars. It looks great and plays great too.
