This Tippin guitar is on tour with Peter Calo (playing with Carly Simon). Visit our blog to read Peter’s reports from the road. This tour includes a performance on Good Morning America and the Today Show both with Carly Simon. This is #2 of our Blackwood Dream Series from master luthier Bill Tippin and it has it all. It starts with premium 2 piece African Blackwood with superb color and grain. Rick Snakewood bindings join the African Blackwood to it’s master grade Adirondack Red Spruce top which brings with it power, clarity and all the headroom you can ask for. Bill also bound the neck and his elegant headstock with Snakewood as well. For those who don’t know Snakewood is extremely valuable and rare. To further accent this stunning instrument Bill added very line Mother Of Pearl Sparkle as the top border, rosette lines, backstrip and tail wedge accents. There is also a first fret flame made from real gem quality Opal border with M.O.P. Sparkle and this is echoed on the bottom of the backstrip as well. Finish touched include a bookmatched Brazilian Rosewood headplate and Gold Waverlys with Black Pearl Buttons. This is as good as it gets and the Bravado body, with it’s SJ size, puts forth a big, beautiful, balanced tone and the African Blackwood and Adirondack work perfectly together to create a lush but strong voice.
