Description

Italy’s Mirko Borghino has collaborated with Italy’s Francesco Buzzurro for this boutique hybrid archtop nylon string 2019 BB1 equally at home for jazz and the classical repertoire. An arched Italian Walnut body is paired with a carved Italian Spruce top from the Val di Fiemme, Alessi tuners, and the dynamite Graph Tech Ghost nylon string pickup system. This offers both 1/4” and MIDI outputs plus volume knobs for both outputs, and bass, treble, mid, and mid sweep tone. So many options! The Borghino BB1 is immensely fun to play, hands down. It handles a wide range of styles and attacks with aplomb, plays effortlessly, and has a lively and quick response that translates perfectly from an acoustic setting into amplified territory.
