Notes: San Diego based luthier John Kinnard has built an international following for his faithfully crafted gypsy jazz guitars. The Dell'Arte Hommage is built in the style of the Favino Petit Bouche, the largest of the traditional gypsy jazz guitars. This design is renowned for it's increased power and projection, and is a versatile instrument for either lead or rhythm work. This example is made with the long 670 mm scale, with a generous 1 3/4" nut for easy fingering. With back and sides of handsome Indian Rosewood, the body makes a brilliant platform for the solid bookmatched Sitka spruce top.

This example is in superb condition, with gold 16X1 tuners and a Bigtone pickup for clear accurate amplification of the acoustic voice. We are pleased to offer this fine example, rarely seen on the vintage market.

Setup: This instrument is strung with light gauge silvered steel strings, and will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference.

Case: Original hardshell case.
