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.

Carefully maintained, this guitar is 100% original condition, with only light incidental playwear. The instrument is finished in a distinctive transparent charcoal finish, a rare custom color we've seen only on this handsome example. Beneath the lustrous nitro lacquer, the body shows particularly vivid bookmatched fiddleback flame maple throughout.

Out of production for some years now, the Sadowsky Bruno has become an instant classic, with its resonant body a full inch deeper than its successor model, the SS-15. With elegant looks, and performance to match, this comfy gig warrior is a catch of the rarest kind. One only, call now.

The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.
