Circa 1900 Hayden's Boston Guitar - Brazilian Rosewood

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This is a circa 1900 parlor size guitar.  It has a solid spruce top with Brazilian rosewood back and sides and a mahogany neck.  As you can tell from the photos, it now has a fixed bridge although there is evidence that at one time it had a trapeze tailpiece with a floating bridge.  The guitar is in good shape although it has a crack on the upper bout and would benefit from a neck set.  It is 11/64" at the 12th fret and the neck has a visible bow.  The neck joint is tight at the heel, but there is some glue residue and a very old screw through the heel.  Notable is a wooden button mounted inside the guitar that says “Hayden’s Boston Guitar”.  Winslow L. Hayden was a composer and guitar instructor who moved to Boston sometime after 1861.  There is also a paper label that states:  Repaired at Jacksonville Musical Hospital, Muhlbacher & Co., Proprietors, 1442 Laura St. – Phone 5-1246-W emxv A.D. 1929.  It has the following numbers imprinted on the top edge of the headstock, a 1 with the number 37 underneath.  Also included is a turn of the century hand tooled leather case.  This looks to be a Harptone style case, although there are no apparent markings to confirm this.  The case opens at the rear and has a purple lining.  At over 100 years old, this would be a great addition to any vintage collection.
