About This Listing

1985 R. E. Bruné Artist Model No. 399 (USA) 653 mm scale, 51 mm nut, Spruce top, Brazilian Rosewood sides and back, Original French Polish, Rodgers tuning machines. These have been very popular with many top professionals, and the second Bruné guitar owned by Andrés Segovia was a 1986 Bruné Artist Model (No. 418).  The sound is very vibrant and rich, extremely colorful and with a huge dynamic range.  There is a reason why Brazilian rosewood was the first choice of top makers and players who wanted the very top performance levels from their instruments, and this guitar embodies these features.  This instrument is very easy to play, yet can be pushed to maximize the volume without buzzing.  It does have some visible playing wear, especially on the top, which is expected when an instrument is used for its intended purpose. This was the first year the Artist Model was introduced, which had deluxe features (Brazilian rosewood, Rodgers tuning machines, elaborate Hauser style purfling scheme, French polish) not offered for the Concert Model. This instrument is very easy to play, yet can be pushed to maximize the volume without buzzing.  It does have some visible playing wear, especially on the top, which is expected when an instrument is used for its intended purpose.  In a way, it makes it all the easier to play, as one need not worry about adding one more insignificant nail mark when digging into the musical expression of a performance.  None the less, the price is significantly less than the cost of a new Bruné Artist, and there is no wait for delivery.  $12,000
