We know these Bozo "Bell-Western" models were made in Japan, but we're not sure of the exact year or the exact name of the company that made them. Mid-to-late 1970s is an educated guess, and the maker was probably K. Yairi or Morris. This example is in excellent and original condition, with some light scratches on both the top and back and a couple of noticeable finish checks on the top (these are only in the finish, and are not cracks in the spruce). Original hardshell case is in equally good condition.
A fine 12-string in Bozo Podunavac's unique style, and one that will stand up to heavier strings in standard tuning without complaint.
