1970 Custom Made Bozo Podunavac Five String Flat top Acoustic with Guild Hardshell case

s/n:274 70

This 5-String flat top acoustic has a great playing setup and by being tuned in fifths, similar to tenor banjo, mandolin, tenor guitar, as well as violin/viola family one could then have a 5-string instrument tuned in fifths with a wider octave range than a similar 4 stringed fifths tuned instrument that they could easily play. Alternately with the 3 wound and 2 plain strings you could easily play in a Spanish Tuning (Open G) with a quick re-tuning of a few strings.

The condition on this single owner extremely rare custom made vintage flat top five string acoustic is Very Good. The only notable blemishes are a hole from where output jack had been on the side/end from when a pickup had been installed (no pickup currently) and minor Pick Guard curling near neck.
