Bozo B-100 Front & Back Views
Bozo B-100 Top View
The instrument has a strong and gutsy sound, with rich bass and strong trebles; think Leo Kottkeís
early six-string sound. Itís good for fingerpicking (although the neck is a smidge narrow for that)
and makes a great busking or rhythm guitar, as it has volume to spare.
It also has a mid-seventies Barcus-Berry pickup in it with the 1/8" endpin jack Ė yes, you read
that right, itís 1/8", not 1/4". Itís not a great pickup but itís contemporary with the age of the guitar.
Condition of the instrument:
The instrument is used. I purchased it in the 1990s, and it already had seen a fair amount of use. Itís
got dings in the top but no appreciable pick wear thanks to the clear pickguard and the prior ownerís
use as a skinny-necked fingerpicking guitar. The nitro-lacquer finish has yellowed with age as lacquer
does. The headstock lacquer is a bit cloudy from age, and it tends to obscure a bit of the inlay there;
it could use a run on the buffer, I suppose.
The neck set remains within limits, although it is a thirty-year-old instrument thatís been strung with lights
or mediums its entire life, so it will in due time need a neck set. Fortunately, thatís possible, as the neck
is joined to the body with white glue (e.g., is resettable), per Bozo, via a dovetail joint.
The bone nut is relatively worn and could do with replacement. The saddle is fine.
Itís a very high-quality instrument made of premium woods with excellent construction with a proven design.
Itís also unique; there arenít many of these around.
