1983 PAUL FISCHER #501
Splendid concert guitar built by English luthier Paul Fischer, bearing its original label on the bottom, signed and numbered #501, manufactured in Oxon, United Kingdom in 1983.
Here is a guitar full of grace and refinement, very light-weight and made from sumptuous woods. After working alongside luthier David Rubio, several of whose guitars produced during this period of collaboration bear a “P.F.” mark, Fischer founded his own workshop in 1975, where he continued in the tradition of 20th century British guitar makers to produce classical instruments of Spanish inspiration.
This guitar, produced in the early 1980s, reaches us today in superb condition: the spruce top, as well as the rosewood back and sides, show no cracks or breaks, the top has not suffered any marks or scratches and presents its original varnish. We also find a magnificent rosette with an intricate marquetry design – a reminder of this pattern can also be found on the plate adorning the bridge – as well as the Rodgers tuners originally fitted to the guitar. The varnish on the back and sides had to be redone following deterioration of the original varnish. For the rest, the guitar has been fully set up in our workshop, with planning and polishing of the frets, as well as adjustment of the action and intonation at the nuts in order to offer optimal playing comfort and a guitar in tune all throughout the fretboard.
Sold in its original fitted hardshell case.
