Hans Raabe Munich Style Guitar Maple, 1916

Hans Raabe Munich Style Guitar Maple, 1916

Here we have a Hans Raabe Munich Style Guitar built of Spruce, Maple and Ebony during 1916 in Munich, Germany – during WWI. Hans Raabe and his son built many instruments in a wide range of styles, from the mid 1880’s to World War II. They were well known for not just the number of instruments built and their variety – their catalog was apparently quite large – but also for the quality of their work.
