We offer this very nice old parlor guitar.  Te label has long since fallen off but by characteristics, we believe it's likely the work of Regal or Lyon & Healy or Supertone.  The solid Spruce top is probably Adirondack given when it was made and the sides and back appear to be Rosewood, perhaps Brazillian.  The entire guitar is festooned with wood marquetry at the bindings and sound hole and also around the back and through the center line of the back.  The instrument is all original except for the tuning machines which have been replaced.  The guitar had a neck reset at least once during its life as can be seen by the slight disturbances near the 13th fret and by the small glue marks by the heel.  The bridge is intact and looks like it has never been off of the the guitar.  Overall, this instrument is in good playing condition with a straight neck and comfortable action.  There are certainly the expected small finish marks and dings typical of a century-old instrument, but surprisingly, no cracks.  (There is one very small 2" line on the top that we believe is just a finish crack as it does not appear to move).  We currently have it strung with 0.11 silk and steel strings because we could not be certain if this was originally a gut string instrument. The tone sounds full range and resonant.  One interesting quirk is a paper label with Hawaiian tuning markings on it that is pasted to the first fret.  It doesn't affect the playing and it looks very interesting so we decided to leave it. The original case is long gone but we will ship it in a modern gig bag for protection.
