Unlabeled Parlor Guitar c.1800’s


SKU: CON-ISI11660 Category: Tag:


This is a very nice 1800’s era parlor guitar!  Made from all solid woods, including Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides.  It has a really nice tone and the action is great!  Looking at it, it has a lot of great, honest relicing and character. It has had many repairs, none were done here, but we checked it all out and made sure everything is good with it.  The neck has been reset and it has a thin wedge under the fingerboard area that’s on the guitar’s top.  The neck heel has been repaired. The bridge has been removed and may not be original.  It also has an added section to it.  If you look at the photos of it, there are 2 shots from the same angle.  A thin red line parallels the added part.  We assume this was done to raise the saddle, to avoid a neck reset.  The top has a lot of play wear and multiple repaired cracks.  There are also repaired cracks on the guitar’s back. The back has 2 bone pins, similar to bridge pins.  These were used in the day to line everything up, when the guitar was built.  The bridge pins are also bone, 2 different sizes. The nut looks to have been replaced.  There could be more repairs of course, but these are the obvious ones.  We checked it all over and everything is nice and solid.  All considered, this guitar is in good condition and will certainly make it’s next owner very happy!
