❌SOLD❌ Hans Schmidt Classical Guitar Brazilian Rosewood, 1980s

Here we have a Hans Schmidt Classical Guitar, built in Rock Creek BC during the 1980s and featuring a lovely Brazilian Rosewood set for the sides, back and head plate. While there isn’t a lot of information available,  Hans Schmidt apparently built classical guitars and Celtic Harps during the 1980s and 1990s in his workshops in the southern central area of British Columbia,  at the lower end of the Okanagan Valley, not far from the Canadian border.  This is a spectacular area!

❌SOLD❌ Larrivee OM 09 Steel String Guitar, 1999

❌SOLD❌  Larrivee OM 09 Steel String Guitar, 1999

The Larrivee OM 09 is based on the classic ‘Orchestra Model’ design dating to 1929, and is itself based on the 000 body size but with the upper bouts adapted to accommodate a 14-fret neck. At first, this model was named after Perry Bechtel, the prominent banjo player who custom ordered it; however, Martin soon realized that ‘Orchestra Model’ had better appeal to migrating banjo players, and never used the Bechtel name in catalogs.

The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony used for the fingerboard and its binding, bridge, and the head plate. A K&K pickup is installed and connected to and end pin jack.

The Larrivee D10 is based on the most popular guitar design – the classic D body square shoulder dreadnought that first appeared in the early 1930s.

The first Square shoulder dreadnoughts appeared around 1931, under Martin’s own name and with the D model designation.
