❌SOLD❌ Danelectro 3022 DC2 Thinline Electric Bronze, 1959

❌SOLD❌ Danelectro 3022 DC2 Thinline Electric Bronze, 1959

In the mid 1950’s, interest in the electric guitar rapidly increased and guitars like the Danelectro 3022 DC2 were built to satisfy the demand. Designed to be inexpensive to produce and buy, tens of thousands of these and related guitars were built for sale through department stores like Sears (under the Silvertone brand), some in the $70 price range. While countless players started with guitars like this, most played for their own satisfaction but some went on to spectacular fame.

❌SOLD❌ Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque 13-Course Theorbo Lute, 1996

Here’s an unusual rarity – a thirteen course, Michael Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute based on a 1730 design and built during 1996 in Toronto. The Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute perhaps presages the harp guitars that appeared in the early part of the 20th century. It combines the melodic and chordal capabilities of the Lute (or guitar) with a set of long, unfretted strings tuned to progressively lower pitches.
