Lacote style ‘La Romantica’ Guitar by Milestones of Music, 2017

Lacote style 'La Romantica' Guitar by Milestones of Music, 2017

For the ‘La Romantica’ model, Jellinghaus begins with the work of Rene Francis Lacote, who built in Paris from 1785 to 1868. At the time, the guitar was becoming more and more popular, but the bracing designs limited the amount of volume it could produce – and consequently the size of the audience.

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

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

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.
