Lacote style ‘La Romantica’ Guitar by Milestones of Music, 2017

Lacote style 'La Romantica' Guitar by Milestones of Music, 2017

For the ‘La Romantica’ model, Jellinghaus begins with the work of Rene Francis Lacote, who built in Paris from 1785 to 1868. At the time, the guitar was becoming more and more popular, but the bracing designs limited the amount of volume it could produce – and consequently the size of the audience.

Recently a number of Martin Size 5 Terz guitars were built, recreating one of the most popular Romantic designs and the guitar favoured by Marty Robbins. Terz guitars were immensely popular in the early 19th century, and were often paired with full size guitars. The Terz is tuned up a minor third, to G – an equivalent is placing a capo on the third fret.
