Price : US $475
Hello from Germany. You are bidding on a wonderful antique parlor guitar, handmade in Germany. This fine instrument bears the label ''Gebr. Rosenlehner, Nurnberg''. No date, I guess made around 1880. Very good condition for its age and playable, needs only one repair. Beautiful all solid woods, top finest spruce, back and sides superb maple. All looks original to me.
The tuners (bone knobs.) work very well, fine carved head, (probably ebony) fingerboard with 17 frets, nice original (probably ebony) ornated bridge, 3 bridge pins were replaced. Greatest soundhole ornation with mother-of-pearl, also fine ornations at the seam. The neck is good playable (action 12th fret about 4mm), but needs a reset. Good nylon strings, very fine sound.
The neck is worn in the middle, so it needs a reset. One small well repaired hairline crack at the top and one repaired crack at the back. Otherwise very good condition to the wood and varnish, only small dings and dongs. See my pics.
Dimensions: Total length 92cm, scale length 62cm, largest width of the body 30,5cm, nut 4,5cm, 12th fret 5,5cm. Included is a good bag. All in all a beauty and very interesting master instrument for the ambitious player or any collection.
I guarantee a correct description and your contentment. See my pics, a fine and rare instrument.
Shipping: USA and Canada 50 USD surface or 70 USD fully insured and faster by air mail. European Union: 27 USD surface, 37 USD air. Japan and Australia 58 USD surface, 88 USD air. I always ship by german post (DHL), it is much cheaper than UPS, Fedex etc.
Please view my other eBay listings (fine guitars, lutes and mandolins). Combined shipping possible. 2 or 3 instruments same shipping price. See my payment details. Thanks and good luck.
