Oscar Schmidt / Stella Parlor Guitar? Original
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-06-12)
Price : US $224
I bought this concert size guitar thinking it was a duplicate to a Oscar Schmidt made UAC I own. You can see from the side by side photo the same stencil was clearly used for both. There are however a few differences - this one has a fancier bridge, different top kerfing, sound hole trim, and dot position markers. It does have the same distinctive Schmidt-style curved back and body dimensions. I’m guessing it dates from the early to mid 1930s. I’d appreciate any further information.
Plays great with low action. Vintage V neck with 1 13/16” nut - ideal for fingerstyle. Open gear tuners look to be original. I believe the finish is all original. No cracks anywhere that I can see. There is some shallow belt rash type scratching on the back, but the top and sides are in remarkably good condition. No pick scratching. Lower back seam is solid but rough. It should clean up without too much trouble if desired. From the condition of the top and the frets, I’d say the guitar hasn’t been played much.
Great sound that is similar to OS Stellas, but is a little clearer on the top end than my UAC. Perfect for blues, but comfortable and versatile for other, too.Please note this auction is for the red stenciled guitar only. Check my other auctions for the Oscar Schmidt UAC shown in the comparison photo.
Please email with any questions before bidding. I’m still open to shipping worldwide, but overseas bidders please check exact cost for your location before bidding - shipping can be high.

I’m afraid I can no longer ship to Australia since recent size restrictions have pretty much eliminated reasonable shipment of guitar-size packages. No case, but I will pack very carefully. Certified funds get immediate shipment, personal checks will need to clear first. Please contact before bidding if you have little or no eBay history. I reserve the right to cancel bids from those with excessive...
