What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent - Some minor finish dimpling and pickguard scratching

Rare model, rare woods, rare maker--this superlative small-body creation from Chris Bozung offers tonal nuance and complexity as well as full-throated, wide-open power.  It can do everything--and not just passably!  Whether you're fingerpicking classic piedmont tunes, picking out lead lines, Carter picking, or just about any other style imaginable, this deep-bodied 00's complexity and concentration of tone lends itself to the player who wants versatility without sacrificing excellence.

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The CB Special is the perfect guitar for fingerstyle playing and vocal accompaniment. It is especially well-suited for lead playing, and its exceptional focus of tone makes it perfectly suited for recording and stage performance over microphones. Its smaller body size also makes it a great choice for women, for male players with smaller hands, or for those who for whatever reason prefer a smaller guitar.

Although the width of the body is slightly smaller than a dreadnought (at 14-3/4" for the CB Special versus 15-5/8" for a dreadnought), the CB Special's extra-deep body means that it gives up very little "air space" to its larger-body cousin. The extra depth of the body provides the volume and power of a larger body, while the slightly smaller body width serves to focus the tone.

The CB Special, aside from being an exceptionally beautiful instrument, is a pint-sized powerhouse whose surprising volume, clarity and focus of tone will satisfy even the most experienced and discerning player.
