Product Description

This is a rare and wonderfully preserved guitar from the master luthier Louis Panormo, from circa 1827-1835. It is 100% original (save the bridge pins), with original finish, and the original marvelous Baker tuners.

More importantly, it plays wonderfully. We simply adjusted the nut a bit, and leveled the original frets, and it plays like it was recently made– but with a sound that only a nineteenth century Panormo can produce (listen to the sound/video clip on this listing).

It has a couple of repaired back cracks, and one well repaired top crack– amazingly little for a guitar this age.

Note the trademark Panormo, original dot markers on the neck at frets 5, 7, and 9.
