Vintage C1890's Wulschner&sons Regal Brazilian Rosewood Concert Parlor Guitar For Sale

Vintage C1890's Wulschner&sons Regal Brazilian Rosewood Concert Parlor Guitar

Vintage c. 1890's Wulschner&Son's Regal concert sized parlorguitar. This is the original Regal label madec. 1893-1900 in Indianapolis. A very nice guitar with excellent materials and high quality craftsmanship. Spruce top withinlayed wood marquetry for the rosette and purflings and celluloid binding. Beautiful Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Mahogany neck. Ebony peg head overlay, fretboard and bridge. Pearl inlays on peg head and fretboard. Original tuners.

The length is 38", width is 14 1/8", depth 4 1/4", scale is 25", and the neck is 1 7/8" wide at the nut.

I have found this guitar interesting in that it is in several ways very similar to a Larson Brother's guitar. Most obvious is the fingerboard inlay with the typical dot and clovers with the characteristic 10th fret marker. Similarly the inlays for the rosette and purflings are very similar to those used by the Larsons. Perhaps most significant though is the Z pattern bracing combined with a very significantly arched top, which is consistent with the Bros. "built under tension" method. Having said all that, I am not suggesting that this was built by the Larsons, but perhaps they studied these guitars and incorporated some of the design features into their own laterwork.These weremade in the mid to late 1890's- at the time when the Larsons were getting started on their career- so it make sense that they were influenced by them. In any case just a personal theory.

Getting back to this guitar...it is in very good restored condition. The restoration work mainly involved the repair of numerous crack on the top as well as a few on the back. These were all carefully repaired and are secured with spruce or rosewood cleats on the interior as needed. Some of the crack had some separation and splints were required to close them. Again, this was all carefully done and while some of the repairs are visible they are not too objectionable. In addition to the crack repairs the guitar has been refinished with a hand applied shellac polish. The bridge is a hand crafted reproduction of the original. Non original bridge pins. The fingerboard and frets are very good. The neck has been reset to the correct angle and the action is very good with a string height of slightly under 1/8" at the 12th fret. Plays very well with an excellent sound.

A case is not included, but it will be carefully packed for secure shipping. The standard shipping rate is for US only. International buyers please email for shipping estimate prior to offerding. sale- excellent opportunity for this fine and rareantique guitar.
