Bozo Podunavac is a Serbian born master luthier raised in Belgrade, Yugoslavia and served his apprenticeship with master luthier Milutin Mladenovic .
He emigrated to US in 1959, moved to Chicago in 1964 and began building guitars with his name “Bozo” on the peg-head.
Bozo Podunavac made his name in the industry the good old fashion way with tone. He built guitars for Leo Kottke, Reverend Gary Davis, Peter Lang, Bob Gibson and many more.
This is a nice Dreadnought guitar in the typical Bozo style (Spruce top and rosewood back and sides) with beautiful inlays and decorations. It was made by Yairi, because at some time Bozo decided to let his guitars be produced under licence by Yairi.
The nut is comfortably at 43 mm and the neck plays very nice.
The guitar is perfectly adjusted and sounds just stunning. It is in a good condition for the age – just some light wear from normal home use.
One tuner cover has been replaced.
