Default Well - that was fun!

This evening i spent about 45 minutes playing a Božo Bell Western 12-string. I had never encountered one in the flesh (in the Brazilian?) before; I am happy to report that all the hype one hears about Božos is not, in fact, hype at all. The esteemed Mr. Podunavac could, indeed, build a gitbox for the ages!

I mean, I smiled a lot!

My next-door neighbor (and good friend) is the uncle of with the owner; he (the uncle) brought it to our local luthier for a set-up and, having discussed it with me before, wasn't going to take it back to the owner until I got a whack at it.

I have probably played - seriously - a couple thousand guitars over the last 40+ years; this is one of the top 5, easy.
