c. 1830 HENRY LETE ROMANTIC GUITAR
A stunning romantic guitar made by Henry Lété, whose stamp appears on the inside of the instrument, built in Mirecourt near 1830, in exceptional condition.
This small sized guitar is made in the style of Aubry-Maire, another renowned builder from the eastern French city. As such, it is very finely crafted and richly decorated, with its spruce top and satinwood sides and back, and the delicate pearl and ebony inlays round the sound hole and on the headstock. 12 fret neck, 632mm scale length. It is extremely rare to find this type of instrument in such restored and playable condition – the guitar has all of its parts, including the original varnish and tuners.
Complete professional setup, including the restoration work, done in our workshop, ready to play.
Comes in modern gigbag.
