During the 1800s there were many romantic guitar builders, in Paris, London, and other European cities.

Fully playable, this wonderful instrument is built with a Spruce top and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides.

The rosette is mother of pearl, and ivory was used for the frets and along with ebony, for the binding. The scale length is 602 mm. A historic ‘coffin’ style case is included.
