Keep in mind that guitars are coming and going all the time. If you are interested in a model not shown, please don’t hesitate to contact us.The photo left is a period Fabricatore, and the others are reproductions of originals by luthier Bernhard Kresse.These are prime examples of the main early 19th century guitar styles: Italian, Viennese, French, and Spanish.There were numerous 19th century builders, in fact probably hundreds of luthiers.For many of these makers, perhaps only a handful or even only 1 guitar survives.When it came time to take delivery of our first shipment of guitars, the shop wasn’t quite ready.
