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 was owned and played by Jimmy Bruno himself, and is accompanied by written documentation from the artist. It is finished in a warm Caramel sunburst, and shows deeply figured bookmatched flame maple throughout. At just 5lb 6oz, the guitar is exceptionally lightweight and well balanced, on the lap or the strap.

The guitar is all original and beautifully maintained, showing no pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear. Now out of production for some years, these compact marvels are great travelers, and versatile performers. A superb working guitar, the Bruno is a fitting tribute to one of the most accomplished jazz guitarists of recent years.

Here's a chance to own Jimmy's own Bruno. One only: call now.
