A very nice old Louis Panormo guitar belonging to Paul Downes, well known folk musician. He's owned it for 50 years and wanted it made securely playable.

The soundboard is in excellent condition, but I can find two thin cracks that need closing up. The body too is in excellent condition and has all three bone buttons which Louis Panormo usually provided. The machine heads are labelled Rance.

The bridge is lifting as the thin metal strip can be pushed between bridge and soundboard. The bridge also has some damage.

The bridge being glued back in position.
