The "Super Classico" in Brazilian rosewood is the top of the JB cavaquinho line, a designation reflected in the quality and age of the woods he uses.  This one was built during what we consider to be JB's peak era, and were it not for some minimal fretwear and signs of gentle use, we'd say it was in mint condition. Maybe better than mint, since Adam upgraded the tuners to Rubners. This one is roda-ready, with a pick-up already installed. Super clássico, indeed.
