Instock Lehmann Guitars


Lehmann & Cole Louis Panormo Model, 1830. NEW $4100.
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 gig bag is included, and a wooden coffin style case is available at extra cost.

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.

photo | photo | photo| photo | photo |
Fine Swiss Pearwood sides and back lend this guitar a unique beauty of both tone and looks. Pearwood looks a lot like cherry but is very resonant and has a lovely warm tone. The Sitka spruce is perfectly quartered and speaks quickly with nice sustain. This size guitar is the same as a classical whose model has time proven perfection. The 12 fret body give more interior air volume for bass development. Brazilian rosewood headplate, fingerboard and bridge keep the colors mellow and the 1 7/8" nut width is perfect for finger style playing or clear chording. The tortoise shell bindings complete the look, and the mother of pearl inlays keep things contemporary.
