1920s Oscar Schmidt “Sovereign” concert size, 12-fret in ladder-braced spruce/mahogany, 1 13/16" nut, 2 1/4" string spacing, rich, warm tone

082818A

These pre-war OS concert size acoustics are becoming harder to find. This body style can be seen in Neil Harpe’s “Stella Guitar Book” on page 29. This example was in sad shape when discovered in an inner city shed and was rebuilt from the inside out. With updated bracing, new fretboard/frets and now solid throughout, it’s a good example of the classic Sovereign model at a fair price.

PRICE: $1799

c.1915 Supertone parlor 12-fret in ladder-braced spruce/oak, 1 13/16" nut, 2 1/4" string spacing, solid player friendly to many styles

082818B

The Supertone brand goes way back to before Sears acquired the original company that gave birth to the iconic parlor guitar name. This example in spruce over oak offers great playability and tone that would suit many styles of play including fingerstyle, flatpicking or strumming. Beautiful 100+ year old guitar.

1930s Supertone 0-size, 12-fret in solid, ladder-braced birch, 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing, fun guitar with a bluesy vibe

082818C

Starting with the cowboy guitars on the early 1930s, old Supertones offered by Sears & Roebuck are fun little guitars for the modern blues player. They are well built, feel comfortable and sound great. This example retains it original Supertone paper label inside the soundhole. A somewhat chunky neck might discourage the small at hand but otherwise this 80 year old guitar is certainly worth a look for the money.

Shopbuilt 00-Deep Body, 12-fret in X-braced solid spruce over solid e.i. rosewood, 1 7/8” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, deep-rich-resonant fingerstyle guitar

122117B

I set out to produce a mid-size fingerstyle guitar with a deep body for increased acoustic tone and projection. This guitar was assembled from my stock of aged spruce and rosewood with a new/old stock mahogany “V” neck that’s at least 60 years old added to the mix. The Martin 00-size body mold delivers classic proportions regardless of tone woods but this example ended being one of my best blends of old and new.
