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.

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,

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.

Bonjour Françoise,

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,

Thank you for the article and for your information. I do believe that I have a Grobert now. How it came to this country, and made its' way to me is a mystery.
I did not get to the museum you mentioned as I was only in Paris for six days and there was so much I missed. I hope to come back some day and stay much longer.
I sent ten pictures of the guitar. Many of the neck joint and the neck, and one of the maker's stamp on the neck block.
What are the books you have written?

Thank you,

Bonjour Françoise,
First, let me thank you for your replies. They are very helpful. I don't have the knowledge to know which Grobert may have built the guitar. That would be very interesting to find out. The fingerboard does not appear to be original. It is very thin, perhaps 2 MM thick. I will be adding photographs of the heel joint soon. Someone had done a lot of very poor repair work which will require much time to put right. This will be a long, but wonderful project once I have researched the guitar as best I can. I would very much appreciate a copy of the article you wrote about Grobert, as well as any other references you may have.
If you would like, you can eMail the article to me at: vtladc@comcast.net.
I will post the photos in the next day or two.
If I may ask, where in France do you live? I visited Paris last September for the first time, and fell in love with the city.
Thank you again,
