❌ SOLD ❌ C. F. Martin Custom Shop Size 5 Terz 12 Fret Guitar, 2015

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.

❌SOLD❌ Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar, 1830

❌SOLD❌ Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar, 1830

Here is a wonderful 1830 Gennaro Fabricatore Romantic Era Guitar. There seems little doubt that the first modern 6 string guitars had their genesis in Naples in the 1790s, in the workshops of Giovanni Battista Fabricatore. Clearly Gennaro Fabricatore I and II were influenced by Giovanni. Innovations were a common occurrence in the Neapolitan hotbed of guitar and mandolin builders and Gennaro Fabricator soon gave their guitars a unique appearance and gained respect throughout Europe.

1838 Louis Panormo Guitar SOLD

1838 Louis Panormo Guitar  SOLD

Louis Panormo was the most successful of all nineteenth-century London guitar makers. His clients included Trinidad Huerta Madame Pratten and probably Fernando Sor. He built guitars from 1822 to around 1855 when his nephew took over the business. This 1838 Louis Panormo Guitar is an excellent example of the work of the era.

This particular 1838 Louis Panormo guitar was Panormo’s top regular model, with brazilian rosewood back and sides and a mother of pearl rosette. It was made in the Spanish style with seven fan braces (yes before Torres).
