ENGELMANN SPRUCE - BOCOTE BIG HOSS MODEL
ITALIAN ALPINE SPRUCE- HONDURAN ROSEWOOD BIG HOSS - WORK HOSS HYBRID - SOLD
ITALIAN ALPINE SPRUCE-HONDURAN ROSEWOOD BIG HOSS - WORK HOSS

This guitar features the beautifully refined, simple rosette and Bolivian rosewood inside linings of a Work Hoss model with the gloss acrylic urethane finish, exquisite Italian Alpine spruce top, and 350:1 playing action adjustment ratio of a Big Hoss model. This Italian top is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen, and highest rated in terms of sound radiation coefficient. The silking is evident from one side of the top to the other. The tone and volume are magnificent. They should be. Not only is the top backed up by a tremendous set of Honduran rosewood, but the top was harvested from the Val di Fiemme. This is the very small forest in Northern Italy where Stradivari sourced all of his top wood for his instruments. Indian rosewood fingerboard. 25.5″ scale length. 1.75″ nut width. 2.5 ” string spread at saddle. 12″ at nut to 20″ at saddle, true compound conical radius on fingerboard. A custom Calton travel case (retail price $1500) is included.
