Gypsy Mystery 1940-50

    Gypsy Mystery 1940-50
    A real „mystery“ Gypsyguitar, which i was selling for a musicians collegue in 2015.The guitar might to be from around 1940-50, marque is unknown (missing the badge inside). It is guessed that the guitar seems to come from an old french production, maybe from around the Mirecourt lutherie area (Couesnon, Carbonell etc). It also seems the guitar has been restored in 2017, at least there is another badge inside stating „Fine Art Guitars, Georg Zimmer, restored 2017“.The guitar has the following measurements:neck: length 67,5 cm, width 50-57mm (1. + 12. fret), Body: 52,5 length x 32,5cm x 44,2 cm width. Sides: 9 x 10,5 x 9 cm width.The neck is absolutely straight and well playable, height at 12. fret is 3,5 - 4 mm. The wood is spruce (top), the sides and back supposed to be caucasian appletree. Neck (could be) walnut with a stripe inlay of rosewood.The tailpiece and the bridge seem to be original, the tuners supposedly arent original and have been changed (maybe been broken).The sound of this outstanding guitar is typically mid based, very loud and strong, a typical french gypsy guitar.
