A124: 1920s Oscar Schmidt  "First Hawaiian Conservatory Of Music"

All solid birch guitar which was sold with "First Hawaiian Conservatory"  music lessons. Concert size.

 

The guitar has still it's original golden paper covered fretboard, which helped the students to find the right tone. Maybe someone wants the guitar in this original condition, for playing slide or lapsteel.  But the purchasing price includes removing the paper and all the necessary fretwork and adjustments, if you want it. This is a great fingerpicker.

 

All over it is in very good,  crackfree condition. All original except a new bone nut, bone saddle and new bridge pins. The saddle was moved backwards  for better intonation. Fresh neckreset.

 

It has a birch  top and birch back and sides, D-shaped poplar neck and ebonizied maple fretboard and a maple bridge. White celluloid soundhole binding.

 

Warm, balanced sound, great for slide and fingerpicking a la Mississippi John Hurt. Comes with a new HSC.
