German parlor guitar (1900)

This guitar is built with the highest quality solid woods, and by hand, probably in Germany.

The top is spruce, the back is one piece, and the sides are curly maple. The handle is made of maple wood. The bridge is stained maple, with ebony pins. 62 cm scale.

It has brass frets, which have been reconditioned, and remain round and polished.

The headstock is mechanical, probably one of the first, and looks like the original.

The varnish is the original shellac. The nut is made of wood.

It has some small cracks in the cover, under the bridge, which have been professionally repaired and sealed.

The guitar is fully operational, solid and tuned well with a great sound, and is strung with 0.11 silk and steel strings.

The height of the strings is 3 mm. for the first at the 12th fret and the sixth the same.

Although it has multiple taps, it is firm, stable and very comfortable to play, tuning well on all frets.

It has been inspected internally and externally, taking all necessary actions to safely recover this instrument.

It is offered with a full guarantee, and its return is accepted if you are not satisfied. If anyone can provide any information it would be welcome...
