This is one of those rare BCR jems that do not come around too often! The Conte FA-1201 guitar was a second production off the original Conti Jazz guitar from 1983 that started a controversy between Bernie Rico and Robert Conti (see story below). This guitar is the 1985 Blue Conte (note the 'i' was changed to 'e') jazz semi-acoustic. Hand carved high quality spruce top, mahogany neck, bound ebony fingerboard, famous BCR cloud mother of pearl inlays and ivory nut. These were handmade in Nagoya, Japan, and are of top quality craftsmanship. Almost all original, the only change looks to be the input jack. The guitar plays and sounds beautiful and has a feel like no other. Comes with original hardshell case. Only a handfull of these guitars were ever made.
