About This Listing

Here just in on trade we have a classic piece of English guitar making history.

Made by Harald Petersen, he was a genius craftsman in my book.

This is a very lightly built earlier example of the Model 'A' circa 1972.

Body is of solid sycamore and has a particularly beautiful figuration not usually seen of this quality.

The top is solid spruce

Fretboard is ebony.

Original case included, also requiring attention.

She requires some reasonable restoration.

There are prior repairs to the upper bout table as shown - these are solid and finished in traditional shellac.

The heel has been repaired probably with a dowel joint as shown.

The bridge is partly detached from the top

The centre seam is also partly unglued.

There is a significant crack running out from the bridge yet lines up well and should repair well.

Some subtle work will be needed, she is not yet lost!

Otherwise the neck angle is good, plenty of saddle left and this is a seldom seen guitar worthy of restoration.

Good luck,

Best regards
