Description

This guitar is one smooth operator. From famed luthier Bill Tippin, this 2005 Bravado custom Jumbo in Cedar and Brazilian Rosewood boasts the pianistic articulation that Tippin guitars are known for, coupled with a loud presence when played with aggressive attack. The chocolate-dark color of the Brazilian Rosewood mirrors the mousse-rich timbre of this Bravado, with a bottom-end with clarity and depth. The Cedar projects well with a lighter fingerstyle approach, thanks to Tippin's flawless voicing techniques.As ever, Bill has set this guitar up perfectly for fingerstyle arrangements and flatpicking; we're hard-pressed to decide which sounds better! Wherever Bill is concerned, the dynamic and vibrant tone are the first things to get players hooked--the second is Bill's aesthetics, from the scalloped heel and subtle arm bevel to the detail work of the Brazilian Rosewood bridge and the perfect fit and finish.Folks, they don't really make them better than this. Try it out before it's gone!

Simply astonishing. Every note is heart-wrenching and gorgeous. It is so easy to emote on this Tippin guitar. I truly love how Bill can make a guitar so beautiful without it every getting over the top. His fit and finish are among the best in the business.
 
Playing this guitar is like playing a portable piano. The tone is rich and the bass is tight and controlled but really present. The overtones on the mids and highs are about as good as it's possible to achieve on an acoustic guitar. Great for all styles of playing a big enough to handle low tunings as well. It also has some of the prettiest Brazilian rosewood for its back and sides that I've seen.
