❌SOLD❌ C. A. Potter Criterion Guitar, Circa 1905

❌SOLD❌ C. A. Potter Criterion Guitar, Circa 1905

There isn’t a lot of information about C. A. Potter Criterion guitars but these were built around 1905 in Cleveland, Ohio. This was a higher-end instrument with features taken from other makers. Notably, the neck and head joints show significant influence from the Martin-Stauffer instruments built around the 1830s. It’s interesting how some of the features found on these early instruments have come back in improved form. On the Potter Criterion, there is a bolt through the heel to secure the neck joint – an arrangement used in a slightly different way by many modern builders including Taylor.
