Hi. I would prefer a British restorer as I have some other early guitars that need work doing to them. No one seems to be advertising for work on early guitars, possibly because they prefer building guitars. I would try restoration myself, but know my limitations.
I'm a new member and I'm not sure I know the protocol here.
I have acquired an old guitar from Prague built by Jaroslav Houslar Dvorak from 1888. All I can find in researching him is that he was a violin maker and I have found his violins on the internet selling from 3,500 dollars to 4,500 dollars. I have never seen anything about building guitars. The label inside this guitar is the exact same that is used in his violins. The guitar has Brazilian rosewood back and sides and spruce or pine in the top. It is built in the Torres style (larger body than a parlor guitar).
Anyone have any knowledge of this builder? Is this guitar rare? I will try and post some photos.
Ik ben teleurgesteld dat ik op deze pagina geen mp3-bestanden aanplakken kan, maar dank je wel voor het idee en voor de hulpaanbod. Ik zal het overdenken. Op het ogenblik ben ik niet zeker wat ik doen wil. Misschien is het beste een eigene website te krijgen, hoewel ik niet weet wat ik ermee aanvangen zal. (Technisch ben ik niet bijzonder begaafd.)
Thank You. I see, You where only joking. I'm allso proud to be a nerd. One should be careful with irony when writting.
I'm impressed with all the ensembles you play in. I'd like to play with some other instruments too. There's not many musicians in Denmark that plays historical instruments and the once that do is only into baroque music and I'm more into the early romantic period not only as a musician but allso as a historian. I read a lot a history book about late 18th till mid 19th century.
I'm happy that You like our video. I'm the one with the 19th century sideburns.
