Robbie Basho's 12 strings reappeared...

... at last!!!

Yes, this is Robbie’s baby - the Mexican 12-string with bi-colored spruce top made by Jon Lundberg in Berkeley - that was thought to be lost and with which he became synonymous. 

It is pictured in its original case, held by a friend of Robbie’s whom he knew through Sufism Reoriented.

After spending some time with an undisclosed Bay Area musician it is soon to find a new 

home in Continental Europe.

Just arguing: at Steffen Basho-Junghans' place in Berlin? 

More details on the guitar’s physical details and its history will be revealed in the documentary.

From an humble scholar and lover of Robbie's music... thanks!
