Parlor guitar 1910 (Germany)
It was built in Vienna in the early 1900s. It has a spruce top and curly maple back and sides.
All are solid woods, 100 years old.
It has a 62 cm scale and mechanical pegbox. The bracing is laded braced (parallel braces).
It was built to be used with gut strings, or silk and steel, 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 very good at 440 too.
Tunes well in all positions, the neck is straight and stable, allowing you to play comfortably with a perfect string height. It retains the original shellac varnish, with numerous scratches. All the cracks that can be seen in the photos have been sealed and repaired internally.
The bridge lost the tip of the whiskers and the end pin, but it remains firm and perfectly functional
It has been completely restored and is ready to play and enjoy for another 100 years.
