We'd not seen a Bown L-00 model before this year, and now we've had two in the space of a couple of months!

This 12-fret L-00 cutaway was built by renowned English luthier Ralph Bown in 2017, featuring a stunning set of Brazilian rosewood for the back and sides, with a Sitka spruce top.

The guitar is equipped with an LR Baggs VTC pickup installed by Ralph himself, and includes a non-original Pegasus hard case.

The guitar is in excellent condition and is being sold via our Sell From Home service, therefore it is located with the seller in the UK. Shipment of this guitar outside of the UK is not possible as the guitar does not include CITES documents.
