Nineteenth Century Aesthetics. Twenty-first Century Performance.
From the Victorian Parlor to the recording studio, performance arena, or your own pickin’ parlor.
Modern guitars were not simply created out of thin air in the 1930s. They evolved from the instruments that preceded them, bearing improvements such as longer necks, solid head stocks, larger bodies, higher string tension, greater volume and superior presence. Our Victorian model is a tip of the hat to an elegant, long lost pre-pre-war aesthetic that deserved to survive into the modern era, featuring half-herringbone (also know as “rope”) purfling, Ivoroid binding and a once-common pyramid bridge.
