I recently purchased an Early Romantic guitar with the label J.W.S.L. Trademark (showing an 1840s British Soldier with a fife). After some research, I found that the J.W.S.L. stands for Joseph Wallis…Continue

"Michael, I just checked your link, and the PDF version is not available. Are you still offering it, and have you made any progress on the others?"

"I mean the guitar means totally original, but not by Chappuy, not Paris but Mirecourt circa 1810, what is early for a 6 strings and possible for ivory frets… At this period luthiers still used non drilled bridges and began to use drilled…"

"Hello Yes it looks as a 10 strings modified into 6 strings after 1820. Fortunatly the head was not shorted and the neck seems not modofied and ok for 5 courses (and not for 6 strings)! It is possible to restore as a 10 strings. You must remove the…"
