We are now taking orders for guitars to be delivered in 2024. The base price for a Bowen OM is $6,000, which includes a custom Ameritage case, the finest woods including master grade tops, aged AAAA or better back and sides of traditional super tone woods including aged Honduras Rosewood hey and Indian Rosewood,.Waverly tuners come standard.
More exotic and rare backs and sides, including Brazilian Rosewood, Koa,, "The Tree" (we only have a few sets left), and Madagascar Rosewood are available and priced based on the individual set of wood. Custom features such as such as custom inlay are available at a reasonable up charge reflecting our costs. Every Bowen guitar receives the same attention to detail and comes PLEK'd for perfect action. Calton cases are also available as an option.
We have one guitar which is not yet sold from our 2023 Group of guitars. This is an exquisite example of "the Tree" matched with Master grade plus Alpine Moon spruce. Because of the extreme rarity of hi grade sets of "the Tree" this is an excellent guitar which should only go up in value as it is becoming nearly impossible to acquire hi Grade examples of this wood. This guitar Will be completed in April or May. You can order it directly from us at a price of $13,250. If we don't have an order for this guitar by the time it's completed it will become the first guitar we have consigned with one of the finest guitar dealers in the country. I would expect they will prices closer to $17,500, which is still below the average for what superb examples of the tree guitars are going for.
