Spanish 12-String Laúd, Telesfuro Julve ca. 1950s, Needs Repair (used)

Regular price $ 250.00

This item is in poor condition and needs extensive repair - final sale, no returns. Please read the description carefully before purchasing.

12-string Laúd made in Valencia, Spain ca. 1950s. Ivory nut & saddle. Hard case included. Our senior luthier estimated about $800 to restore this instrument, including:
- long top crack, splint
- short top crack
- back center seam, replace center strip
- repair top edge under tailpiece, remount tailpiece
- dress frets & set up

Our luthiers are overly busy with customer repairs and a few long term restorations, so we decided to pass on this project and are selling it as-is, hoping that it will be an appealing project to another luthier.

This instrument came to us via a large estate collection. We do not know much about its provenance or history. Though it has been examined and evaluated by our senior luthier, we have not been able to glean many details about the maker, or the instrument's market value. We believe that once restored, it would have some collector's value.
