Description

Multi-instrumentalist and world music virtuoso Bob Brozman was certainly qualified to design a guitar capable of showcasing a myriad of styles. A collaboration between this esteemed world musician and Richard Hoover resulted in a spectacular baritone guitar that can lend a piano-like presence to slide and open tuning playing styles. The very long (27 inch) scale, 12-fret Mahogany neck allows the guitar to accommodate heavier strings at the lower tensions of open tunings. The highest quality Mahogany back and sides and a rare European Spruce top provide extreme tonal clarity. This unique guitar combines design elements and tone woods for unrivaled volume, tone and sustain. If your set list includes Blues, Hawaiian Slack-Key or open tuning fingerstyles, this guitar is the ticket.

Bob Brozman’s personal instrument is captured in the Professional Model. In addition to the appointments of the standard DBB – a Herringbone combination purfling and Ivoroid top binding with a Herringbone and Ivoroid rosette – the DBB Pro is built with gorgeous reclaimed Koa wood for the back, sides and peghead overlay. This increasingly rare tone wood is acquired from old, naturally downed trees. SCGC is privy to a proprietary seasoning procedure that captures the colorful golden chocolate richness of this Hawaiian national treasure. Mr. Brozman warned us that, “The tone of this guitar can make a grown man cry.”
