This beautiful guitar bears all the similarities to the early Busato design. Although it is not labeled we are calling this Busato as the body shape/design was used exclusively by the Busato shop. The playability and tone are excellent on this instrument, easily one the best sounding and well balanced instruments I've ever had the pleasure of playing.
