The pinnacle of Barebones unique innovations, Crown series represents the heart of production, available in two grades.

The simple yet elegant form of the double cut-away body is immediately identifiable yet, with the contrasting wood combinations selected, ensure that with Crown instruments, no two are identical.

My own internal design incorporated with the hand assembly gives a consistency in sound quality with the ability to customize the instrument through wood selection.

Crown series are available in Octave & Standard Mandolin, Guitar, Tenor Guitar or Tenor & Baritone Ukulele.
