A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Hi, this is my first post. I've just added photos of what seems to be a Joseph Panormo guitar. From what I've read, the address on the label suggests a date in the late 1820s.
The bridge is not original (covers damage caused by a bodged replacement - it had steel strings when I inherited it from my wife's uncle).
It has five fan braces and a simple pegbox with what look like original pegs.
If it's of interest, I'll add more photos. Thanks for looking!
Ian Watchorn again - I just sent you a note. I have restored a very similar Joseph P of 1827.
Attached is a photo of the label and belly with original bridge. Do you still have this guitar?
Look forward to hearing back and hopefully sharing details.
