Handcrafted in Michigan, the Bloom JB Special is built to meet the needs of the experienced player, and it can be an inspiring instrument for intermediate players as well. The 11.5" diameter 3-ply 3/4" hard maple rim has a birdseye maple rim cap and rolled brass tone hoop. The ebony fingerboard is scooped above the 17th fret for easy over-the-neck playing. The volume and tone quality are even and full up and down the fretboard.
