This guitar is in “excellent plus plus” condition (also called "near mint") showing only the slightest indications that it has ever been held or played. Its bridge was recently reglued under warranty by the Santa Cruz Guitar Company but there is no indication that this work was even done. Yes, somebody with great visual acuity may note some extremely small indications of playing time, some minor scratches or scruffs on the surface of the wood, some (very) small bubbles on the edges of the glossy finished wood on the headplate, some light marks at the very tip edge of the headstock, a few infinitively small dings here and there, but it is, on the whole, cleaner than (probably) 96% of used Santa Cruz Bob Brozman guitars extant.
Bob Brozman Baritone Specifications: Its back and sides are solid and genuine mahogany, its glorious top is German spruce; it has 19 frets (12 of them to the body joint) and a scale length of 27” nut to saddle. The width of the fingerboard at the nut is nominally 1 29/32nd" (which means it's a hair over 1 7/8" but under 1 15/16th"). At the bridge saddle the spacing is 2 5/16th". Its decorative features include the long ‘Diamond & Squares’ inlay pattern on the crème-black-crème bordered fingerboard, the traditional herringbone wood marquetry rosette and purfling combination around top and around soundhole, a zipper or “zig-zag” wood marquetry backstripe within a mitered border that continues down the center of the back, with zipper end graft at bottom. The stark and striking headstock is bordered in ivoroid-black-ivoroid with the gleaming “Scgc” headstock logo shining like a beacon from its upper regions, the tail of the “g” hanging down like a pendulum between those manly squared slots.
This guitar provides any player the thump, definition and power to be able to be the alpha person in any room in which it is played. One cannot help but think of the sterling performance work of John Allan Frink, noted song interpreter of Newark, DE, who uses a Brozman guitar to accompany himself and, in addition to being melodious beyond all description, it sounds like the typani section at the New York Philharmonic. Its sound will astound; in its voice you'll rejoyce.
