1839 LOUIS PANORMO

NUMBER 2296

The guitar as it arrived in the workshop in May 2022 for restoration. It will be kept in the family for use of a young talented musician. The body is Brazilian rosewood. The fingerboard is also rosewood but may be Indian rosewood.

The bridge has come away from the soundboard and only has four bridge pins. Fortunately the remaining two of these well preserved pins were found inside the body. The label is clearly read through the sound hole.

The tuning machines which are fitted have narrow barrels (the metal rod around which the strings wind) and are made for steel stings, not nylon or gut. Looking carefully, the sides of the peg head show holes where two previous sets of tuning machines have been fitted, first, the original wide barrelled set, then a narrow barrelled set, followed by the present ones. I intend to fit proper classical guitar machine heads.
