EARLY ROMANTIC GUITARS

__________________________________________________________________________________

Lehmann & Cole Louis Panormo Model #502, 2018. NEW $4500.

picture | picture | picture | picture | picture | picture  | picture
This is a copy of the premier builder of guitars "in the Spanish style" in London in 1830. I had an original one in the shop a few years ago and made an accurate drawing before it went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts for the "Dangerous Curves" exhibit. Ours is made of prime Brazilian rosewood veneers for the sides and back, just like many early guitars were constructed - both for strength and beauty. The top is a fine grained spruce finished with bees wax and polished to a luster. The neck is maple and ebonized mahogany like the original. The soundhole is surrounded with pearl and the bridge tails are inlaid. It has a fan braced top for superior overtone development, and has a carbon graphite reinforcement in the neck. The fingerboard is Brazilian rosewood and has EVO gold frets.A handmade wooden coffin style case is included.

MODEL RENAULT & CHATELAIN, 1780

The original of this model is in the Musee de la Musique in Paris. It is a fine example of transitional models from the 5 course Baroque guitar to the six single string modern guitar. It features an elongated body and a fingerboard that is flush with the top like earlier guitars, and metal frets, figure 8 peghead, and open sound hole like later guitars. The tone is full and sweet with excellent volume.

#491 is in curly maple with an Engleman spruce top, black painted neck, and fit with Peghed geared tuners. It is finished with amber spirit varnish and has a beeswaxed soundboard. It has fan bracing and a rich tone. $4500. including handmade wooden period style case. Pictured below.

This guitar is currently available through Dream Guitars. LINK

Electric / Acoustic Guitars

The All Nighter, built to order $2850.
picture | picture | picture | picture | picture | picture
| picture | picture

The All Nighter is constructed on the same principle as the original Lance: it is an acoustic guitar with pickups. All solid wood construction lends an acoustic quality to the tone and keeps it super light. This model has a 15 3/4" lower bout width, and a string length of 25". It can be fit as shone above with two Kent Armstrong split coil pickups, or with pickups of your choosing. It is also popular with jazz players with a single neck pickup.

Because of the rigidity of the bent soundboard, the All Nighter does not easily feedback like some hollow electrics. It can be fit with a piezo crystal bridge pickup if a more acoustic sound is desired. The model shown has the upgrade neck with an angled headstock and banner inlays.


The bent side construction and spruce top keep the weight way way low (6 pounds - even with heavy strings) and provide a great acoustic vibe. This guitar has handwound Kent Armstrong split coil pickups for an amazing variety of tones. There are two push/pull pots and one tone control with a 3-way flip switch. The back and sides are Brazllian Lacewood. The string length is 25" and the lower bout is 15 1/2". Comes with quality Ritter gig bag or TKL 7800 series hard case (add $125.).
