Vintage Early1900's Lyon & Healy Parlor Guitar- Flamed Solid Cherry:
VINTAGE EARLY 1900'S LYON & HEALY PARLOR
GUITARThis vintage early 1900's Lyon & Healy parlor guitar is branded
"Columbus" as seen through the soundhole. The solid, old growth
tonewoods its made of are spectacular.With flamed Cherry back and sides and elegant Ebony detailing.
Tightly grained Spruce top and regally patterned soundhole rosette. The solid brass, reverse gear tuners look/work great . The neck
heel has the ship's keel shape found on turn of the century L & H
guitars. The heel is tightly adhered to the body. The neck angle is very respectable and the neck is uncommonly
straight for a 100 year old guitar. Action is 5/32" at the 12th fret. There is no capo wear, or really any wear at all, on the back of the
neck. The finishes throughout the guitar are original, thin, and very
clean.The seam in the two piece top has lifted a little from the bridge
to the endpin. There is a 2" long tight crack on the back at the edge
of the treble side waist. Also some "waves" in the wood on the back,
though nothing severe. Some minor finish loss around the bridge and
evidence of a tailpiece having once been on the guitar with four pin-
holes at the butt end. The lower bout measures 12 1/8" wide, the upper bout is 9" wide,
about 36 3/4" long with a 24 1/4" scale length. The guitar is 4"
deep as measured at the endpin and string spread at the saddle
is 2 5/8".There is no case. . . . . . . .
