Romantic guitar in the style of Lacote from ~ 1850 – a beautifully crafted and very good sounding guitar.

This guitar was built around 1850 with very good materials and with highly professional craftmanship. We can’t find a makers stamp anywhere, but the building style clearly makes it to a French guitar of the middle of the 19th century.

The guitar sounds fantastic and can easily compete with the best instruments from Lacote.
A very charming sound perfect for getting closer to the authentic sound of the music of such composers as Sor, Giuliani, Aguado, Legnani, Diabelli, Carulli, Coste and Legnani, just to name a few!
A dream guitar that produces the most beautiful timbres. It also has the volume and power one would not have expected for in such a guitar.

The condition is very good for the age. It has been recently restored by Domenico Pizzonia and he has done such a great job, that it looks and plays fantastically.

The guitar plays easily, with a straight neck and a pleasantly low action.
The nut width is 44 mm and the scale length 620 mm.
