Rare guitar from France, built around 1880 in Mirecourt after the tradition of Rene Lacote by Jerome Thibouville-Lamy!
A gorgeous original 19th Century Romantic Guitar from the renowned Thibouville-Lamy workshop. Labelled Jerome Thibouville-Lamy. Exact year unknown, but mid to late 19th century would be estimated.
This is a professional grade historical romantic concert guitar.
This guitar was built very expertly using very high quality materials.
One-piece rosewood back, high-quality tuners, ebony fingerboard, rich and very noble ornaments – plus an impeccable and masterly workmanship … all this makes this guitar a very noble instrument.
In addition, the guitar comes with a very old and probably original case. It is certainly a master made instrument that has been played in the concert hall by a professional musician.
The rosewood used for the back and sides is the highest quality wood available at the time. The guitar also has a very fine spruce top and an ebony fingerboard.
The beautiful inlays and the headstock are striking. The nut width is 46 mm and the scale length 630 mm.
The condition of the guitar is fantastic (only some stable repairs) and it plays very easily with a straight neck and low action.
The guitar sounds noble and immediately impresses with a very complex tone. The basses are deep and the trebles are smooth, lively and colourful with great expressiveness.
As soon as you play the guitar, you have the impression of melting into the instrument, because the sound is very touching, this guitar awakens deep emotions and you can literally feel how the tones just jump out of the instrument.
Definitely a romantic guitar on a very high level with which you can authentically revive the music of that time.
