Comments:

     BunnyBass has typically been known for our vast collection of basses with a slight emphasis on guitars. Well, we have decided to go full speed ahead with our guitars and perhaps attract a completely new following-guitar players! This is our first offering from Durham, NC based luthier Ryan Gadow. Ryan constructed this beautiful guitar for display at the 2004 Summer NAMM show held in Nashville, Tennessee. This superbly constructed guitar encompasses all of the qualities you would expect to find in a finely hand crafted instrument. Ryan pays close attention to detail, even placing his signature on the back of the headstock. Ryan tells us here at BunnyBass that he wants his guitars to be more than just an instrument that someone owns, but rather an integral part of their musical being and one that he or she will live with for a long time and enjoy. The Jazz Model has a smooth as silk neck, is a real effortless joy to play and offers a wide a variety of tones for the working guitarist. To quote the Gadow brochure "this Jazz model is named for it's smooth creamy, crisp and clear tone, but don't let the name fool you, it can hold it's own in any rock band. Yeah, we thought you'd like that."

This instrument is documented in the BunnyBass Musical Instrument Archive.
