My preference with this guitar being sold is for an in person hand over, packing and freight is to be avoided for this rare and beautiful instrument.
With much deliberation I have made the decision to part with this wonderful piece of what I consider to be a museum instrument of art and style and the finest example of instrument making and design of the 1920’s. I have been the owner and caretaker of this fine piece for the past 16 years. The sale comes with the previous owner’s letter showing the family provenance from being originally purchased at a Gladesville music store between approx. 1929-1932
