Steel String Parlor Guitar, ca. 1930 (used)

Regular price $ 550.00

Unmarked, maker unknown. Probably built around 1930. Handsome small body guitar, label missing, with ladder-strut spruce soundboard and cherry-stained birch back and sides with white bindings and nice wood purflings. Dyed pearwood or similar fretboard with mother-of-pearl dot markers. Original tuners in good working order.

Fully reconditioned and in excellent condition overall. Originally set up for slide, revised for proper action for blues and finger-picking: neck has been re-set, interior bridge-plate reinforced, braces reglued as needed, original bridge with repositioned saddle fret for accurate intonation, new bone nut. Nice varnish finish - top finish has been thinned and french-polished. Lovely tone.

90-day guarantee for structural integrity and playability from luthier-owner. Sold cosmetically as-is. With sturdy rehabbed chipboard case. Use light or extra-light gauge strings.
