    DSCF7097Del Oro Parlor Guitar C. 1930’s

    In a long forgotten time…

    All the hope and glory envisioned by America is summed up in the motif’s screenprinted on this guitar. The art deco imaginings of sky scrapers and jack bauds suggest better times ahead.

    Beautiful solid birch construction with maple fretboard. New fretboard, refret, bridgeplate and soundboard rebracing and reinforcement. She’s recieved the whole 9 yards.

    America was not yet to enter the war when this baby was made. However the USA was building some fine instruments. This is one example of that time. We’ve brought her back to life with a neck reset and refret, everything is ready to go and the vintage tone shines. At $2900 here is a chance to have a pre war dream.

    This little baby was so beautiful when we got her that the idea of “modding” her from a pin bridge to a string through body was not going to fly. So we did only what was needed; Neck reset, refret, replace broken bracings etc. Check out that decal, check out that label, would you do to a beautiful vintage parlor guitar than that?

    And she sounds amazing! History history history! It’s all here for very little

  4. Oahu Hawaiian Parlor c.1928

    May 23, 2014


    Built in the Hawaii in the heyday of the hawaiian lap steel craze, this little girl was restored in our workshop some 5 years ago and is a treat to play.

    Sadly her previous owner is down sizing and moving overseas.

    So we are very lucky that this vintage example is staying in Australia.

    You know, sometimes our little parlor guitars just scream out to be …well something different.

    To that end, that’s exactly what we’ve done here. The P90, the gilded paint work, the roadwearing, all come together to make something truly unique. Some will love it, some, not so much, but boring she is not.

    For those who choose to love this one off vintage treasure

    1942 Serender Parlor Guitar


    Made by the Richter guitar co. of Chicago, this little baby is one of the most beautiful sounding parlors that we’ve restored. Vintage tone with exceptional volume, coupled with incredible playability. Everything has been done here. Re built and re braced. Amazing mid range punch whilst keeping the highs and lows in the mix
