This one really is a beauty. Do you maybe have some more information, lets say photos from inside (from the restoration). Tracing of the outline of the body would be also be valuable.
Hello! Thanks for your friendship and comments about the video!
Hello F. and D.,
That`s nice to have this kind of contact with you. Your new book is very interesting
and something to learn.
Bonjour Françoise, It was good to hear from you. My apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I have not yet started work on the Grobert. I am not sure how much to repair, and how much to restore. It is the rarest guitar I have had to work on, and I want to make sure I am clear on how to proceed.
Your help has been of great value in helping me identify the guitar, and I want to make sure the work I do is worthy of its quality.
Thank you for your help,
Thank you very much for posting the article. I read it with great interest & fascination! If you ever have trouble posting things like video's, please let me know so I can help.
Best wishes, Jelma
Nice to hear from you! I am eagerly waiting fro volume 2 of La Guitare which I have ordered.
By the way concerning your request for 6-course Spanish guitar I know that Tony Bingham has one for sale which is quite similar to mine.
I appreciate the photo that you sent. The brand is there on the underside of the brace, just as it is in your picture. I will send a picture soon.
I am very grateful for your help,
