Salon guitar 1920.

It was built in Germany in the early 1800s. It has a spruce top and maple back and sides.

All are solid woods, 200 years old. It has a 62 cm scale and mechanical pegbox, (I would have it originally made of wood, but it was modified.

The bracing is laded braced (parallel braces). One of the tuners tunes in the opposite direction, that is common in those years, resembling the operation of stick tuners. One side of the headstock was changed.

The frets do not have a crown, they are silver bars with a rectangular section, this is the intermediate step between the gut frets of the vihuelas and the frets with a crown.

It was built to be used with gut strings, and to be tuned to 432 Mhz and it is in this tone that it will give all its nuances and expressiveness. Although it sounds great at 440 too.

The neck is very thin, like an electric guitar with a thin neck.

Tunes well in all positions, the neck is straight and stable, allowing you to play comfortably.

It has been completely restored and is ready to play and enjoy!
