it’s time to let my personal Bessie Deluxe go to a new home, this is number 10, and the fanciest Bessie made to date, also uniquely made to Stella spec


Spruce top, poplar back and sides, cherry neck, Stella bracing, dyed maple fingerboard and pyramid bridge, beautiful multi coloured herringbone top perfling, bound fingerboard and headstock, deluxe hand hammered tailpiece and huge sound.


The Bessie’s are a Kirtley original body design but heavily inspired by the original 12’s played by Leadbelly and Blind Willie McTell, 26 1/2” scale length, standard tuned down to B standard.


These guitars are monsters, perfect for the old blues stuff, I also used this one in some recordings to sit deep in the mix and it really fills out a totally different audio spectrum.


This has been my Bessie for the last few years, it’s the most recent Bessie built as I haven’t made one in a while, because it has some signs of playwear it’s being offered at a great discount from what this guitar would otherwise be


It will be shipped in a new case
