Notes: Crafted to the precise specifications of its illustrious namesake, the Jimmy Bruno Model is constructed of highly flamed 5-ply arched maple, specifically crafted to optimize amplified tone while suppressing feedback. The 14 3/4" body is a delight to hold, and a breeze to tote to the gig. The Bruno's neck profile is particularly inviting, and the radius of the solid ebony board combined with the immaculately dressed fretwork make for an exceptionally nimble playing experience. A thoughtful touch is the placement of the jack, which is located near the tailpiece, well away from the player's knee.

This guitar is finished in a gleaming Sienna sunburst, and shows beautifully symmetrical bookmatched flame maple throughout. At a mere 5lb 9oz, the guitar is wonderfully lightweight and well balanced, on the lap or the strap.The guitar is all original and carefully maintained; apart from a bit of fogging on the pickup cover, this example appears in virtually unplayed condition. A thoughtful blend of comfort, tone and playability, the Bruno is a companionable traveller, and a superb performer on stage or in the studio.

Now sadly out of production for some years, these compact marvels have become instant classics, and much in demand, from demanding players worldwide. Don't dawdle: call now.
