Options on the Bosch model
Because we offer it specifically as a historical instrument, there isn't a lot of leeway for change on the Bosch model. Consequently there are just a few choices to be made. If you are looking for an instrument with more options, we would suggest one of our other models. This page and the pages explaining the specific options will help you to choose the ones that are appropriate to your playing level and style, your budget, and your future plans for your instrument.
It's not necessary to choose from the options when ordering - we will contact you to confirm your choices when we start building the instrument.
While prices on most of the options you choose will remain stable while you are waiting for your instrument to be built, some (such as amplification and tuners) are subject to changes in the market, so the price of the option may change by the time your instrument is begun. We will do our best to keep these price changes to a minimum, and you may decide not to include the option if you inform us of your choice before we start building.
