Larson Brothers Maurer 551 Steel String Guitar, late 1920s REDUCED

Larson Brothers Maurer 551 Steel String Guitar, late 1920s REDUCED

This Larson Brothers Maurer 551 dates to the late 1920s and uses an Auditorium sized body, 15 inches wide. As was often the case in the period, there is no serial number and records are scarce, so it is difficult to date exactly. The top is Spruce, the back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood, with a number of old repairs to both. The neck is mahogany, with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge. The scale length is a modern 25.6 inches, and the nut width a fairly wide 1.9 inches. The finish base is original but there are a number of touchups and some overspray.

SOLD 1830 Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar

SOLD  1830 Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar

Here is a wonderful 1830 Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar. There seems little doubt that the first modern 6 string guitars had their genesis in Naples in the 1790s, in the workshops of Giovanni Battista Fabricatore. Clearly Gennaro Fabricatore I and II were influenced by Giovanni. Innovations were a common occurrence in the Neapolitan hotbed of guitar and mandolin builders and Gennaro Fabricator soon gave their guitars a unique appearance and gained respect throughout Europe.
