This NAMM Show Special is inspired by an instrument of George Bauer, who was a Philadelphia luthier around 1890-1910.

This 12-fret Grand Concert model features a dovetail neck joint with hide glue construction, grained ivoroid binding and heelcap, an ebony bridge and ebony fingerboard that is bound with grained ivoroid and inlaid with an abalone and mother-of-pearl custom snowflake and block design.
