Fylde / Orsino / 1978 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
This is a very early example of a Fylde Orsino, and the age has really matured the tone. The first thing you notice is the depth of the bass, well rounded and rich, yet not overpowering so the mids and trebles have plenty of room to blend beautifully. The guitar’s a dreadnought body shape, and features a Cedar top and Mahogany back and sides. The fingerboard and bridge are beautifully figured Indian Rosewood, and diamond Abalone inlays finish off the classic look. It's in good condition, with the signs of playwear that it’s been played and loved in equal amounts. It has a K and K active pickup fitted, with tone and volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
