Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

Tim Reede’s instruments are demonstrations of his skill and craftsmanship, and also of his understanding of what a guitar needs – an understanding comes from actually playing them. Here we have a Tim Reed Palo OM, built during 2017 at Reede’s shop in Minneapolis using bearclaw spruce, likely Sitka, for the top, Palo Escrito for the sides and back, and a 5-piece neck of mahogany, walnut and maple. The headplate, fingerboard and bridge are Indian Rosewood with bone for the nut and saddle. The top features a very blue Abalone rosette. Tuners are Gotoh 510 models, very smooth and accurate.

It is constructed with a Cedar top, Indian Rosewood for the back, sides, headplate and bridge, mahogany for the neck and ebony for the fingerboard. The tuners are quality Schaller models, gold-coloured with faux pearl buttons. It also sports a set of the original Twelfth Fret bridge transducer pickups, mounted to an end-pin jack. This wonderful instrument plays well and is in overall good condition, with a few small marks on the top and back acquired over the last 36 years.

Albert J Litto 7 Course Renaissance Lute, 1965

Albert J Litto 7 Course Renaissance Lute, 1965

Here we have an Albert J Litto 7 Course Renaissance Lute, built during 1965 in Kenmore, New York.  This lovely Renaissance lute demonstrates many traditional construction techniques. The bowl back is composed of flamed maple ribs, bent and joined. Inside the bowl, the ribs are sealed with parchment tape, made wet to induce expansion, then coated with hide glue. The water on the inside forces the ribs to curve from side to side, and the hardening glue keeps them in this shape.
