❌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.
