A great instrument from master luthier Bozo Podunavac. Best known for building some of Leo Kottke's guitars during the 70s his instruments have become quite collectable. This one's a very rare left-handed model featuring a spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides as well as his trademark inlay work all over. A real work of art!
About Bozo Podunavac:
Bozo Podunavac (pronounced bo-zho pod oo nav ack) was a Serbian born master luthier / guitar builder who emigrated to the U.S. in 1959. He moved to Chicago, where he began working in the repair department of a musical instrument dealer and manufacturer. In 1964, he opened his own shop and began building guitars with his name "BOZO" on the peghead. He apprenticed in the old world tradition of his homeland, and relished building highly ornate instruments. In the mid-70's, he left the Chicago area and moved to Southern California where he opened up his own shop in San Diego along with a school of lutherie. Do to some health problems, Bozo moved to Florida and continued to offer his guitar services there.
