SS Stewart Model 4024 Archtop Guitar Sunburst, 1930s

SS Stewart Model 4024 Archtop Guitar Sunburst, 1930s

Here’s a lovely piece – from the early 1930’s, an SS Stewart Model 4024 archtop guitar, built by either Regal or Harmony and sold through Buegeleisen and Jacobson, owners of the Stewart brand. The SS Stewart company, named for Samuel Swain Stewart was a major producer of banjos between 1878 and 1904, and was bought by B&J (Buegeleisen and Jacobson) a few years after Stewart’s death. Over the years, B&J shifted to producing mostly guitars with the brand, had many companies build the actual instruments including Chicago Musical Instruments, who also built Harmony, Kay, and Silvertone brands.

❌SOLD❌ Collings DS1 12 Fret Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2011

❌SOLD❌  Collings DS1 12 Fret Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2011

The Collings DS1 12-fret slope shoulder dreadnought draws from the well of the earliest large body steel string guitars, the dreadnoughts built for the Ditson company by C F Martin from 1916 to 1930. Martin made over 500 guitars for Ditson, but the dreadnought was not popular at the time, and from 1916 to 1921, only 14 were dreadnoughts. That changed completely in the early 1930s, with banjo players migrating to guitars; these players needed both volume and more frets, so the Dreadnought design was revived and given a 14 fret neck.
