Chris Bozung is a respected maker of acoustic guitars and banjos, and you don't see these pretty CB guitars come up for sale very often. Gibson and Martin, and Chris' own aesthetics meet in this unique guitar, with a nice '30s style dark sunburst and red-hued mahogany back and sides. The fleur-de-lis fretboard inlay, pretty rose peghead inlay, and swirling CB script on the headstock as well as the CB peghead shape make this one identifiable as a Chris Bozung guitar from a ways away. The Adirondack top has bearclaw throughout that gives a birds-eye effect; very unusual! Though I'm assured the back and sides are Honduran mahogany, their shimmering figure gives the suggestion of movement like good Cuban mahogany. This dreadnought produces fully, meaty trebles and the very strong mids work together gives chords a little more blend than one might expect from an Adirondack/mahogany instrument. There are some dings and indentations in the top and a spot of missing finish on the side up by the neck joint, but the guitar is in very good condition overall. Ordered today, this guitar would be $3000 and a year's wait.
