French romantic guitar from ~1860 – in the tradition of Hypolite Colin, Rene Lacote, Petitjean …
Sometimes you wish these guitars could talk … that’s the case with this little masterpiece.
A very beautifully built guitar, exceptionally good … but unfortunately there is no reference to the builder.
It has similarities to some guitars by Rene Lacote and Hypolite Colin, which is why we classify it as a French guitar from around 1860.
This beautiful guitar has beautiful back and sides made of flamed maple. The top is of fine spruce.
The lovely shaped bridge literally smiles at the observer. The beautifully decorated rosette and the discreet purfling, as well as the beautifully crafted headstock complete the picture.
The scale length of the guitar is 605 mm and the nut width 44 mm. The guitar is in good condition and plays very well, with a low action and a straight neck.
The guitar has a fine sound, sweet and with a lot of character and charisma. The guitar fascinates with its lively and charming nature and you feel directly connected to it.
The matured wood and the fine construction create wonderful timbres and a captivating tone. Nevertheless, it also has the volume and power that you want from such a guitar.
