Notes: The successor to Sadowsky's celebrated Jimmy Bruno Model, the SS-15 is constructed of highly flamed 5-ply arched maple, with the body depth slimmed to a comfy 1 3/4" depth, simply delightful under the arm. Specifically crafted to optimize amplified tone while suppressing feedback, the 14 3/4" body is a breeze for extended woodshedding, or toting to the session.

The SS-15 neck profile is particularly inviting, and the 1 3/4" solid ebony board, combined with the immaculately dressed fretwork, make for an exceptionally nimble playing experience. The Sadowsky True-Tone ebony bridge is supplied with two saddles, for accurate intonation with both wound and plain G strings. And a thoughtful touch is the placement of the jack, which is located near the tailpiece, well away from the player's knee.

At just 5lb 2oz, the guitar is happily lightweight, and nimbly balanced on the lap or strap. Beneath the lustrous Sienna Burst finish, the body shows particularly vivid bookmatched fiddleback flame maple throughout. Carefully maintained, this fine example is 100% original condition, and without apparent playwear.

This handsome instrument is supplied with all original accessories, including feedback suppressing soundhole plugs, polish, and paperwork, in its original Sadowsky deluxe black arched plush lined hardshell case. With elegant looks, and performance to match, this perfectly tailored gig guitar is the ideal companion for the working player, or weekend warrior. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge (.012-054) roundwound nickel strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.
