19th Century Original Guitar neatly ornamented

July 23, 2021

For Sale

Beautiful and spectacular original romantic guitar, in very good condition and neatly decorated with mother of Pearl and fine timbers inlays.

Maker unknown; Without the original label. It probably dates from the middle / second half of the 19th century. The guitar shows diverse influences in its craftsmanship, but it is very likely that it comes from the German region of Saxony; (probably from Marneukirchen, one of the most important musical instrument manufacturing centers in Europe for 350 years, or from Bubenreuth). The guitar exhibits the slotted dome-shaped head that Austro-German makers had begun to use in conjunction with geared tuners, since the 1830s.

Features:

Back: Cuban mahogany.

Fingerboard: Ebony.

Top: spruce.

Gorgeous mid-century original pegs.

Mother-of-pearl inlays on the bridge, fingerboard, pegbox, top edges and soundhole.

Fine marquetry work made of very fine and various timbers throughout the instrument.

String length: 62 cm.

Fitted hard case included.

It´s a luxury instrument, extremely beautiful, and with a nice sound of the time. It is in a playable condition. It does not need any restoration to use.

Baroque Guitar For Sale

May 2, 2021

For Sale

Luthier Mikhail Fedchenko,  2010
top – spruce
body – maple tree
inlaid fingerboard – rosewood and maple
Template – Voboam

A bright and strong instrument, suitable for both continuo and solo music.
The guitar has never undergone repairs, has no damage or cracks.
One peg is missing.
A year ago I was in Italy and I left my guitar there, due to the quarantine and the closed borders I could not return to take it back. This year I bought another guitar in Russia and therefore I decided to sell this one.
The guitar is in a convenient semi-rigid case.
You can try it in Verona or Vicenza.
