Larson Brothers / Dyer Harp Guitar Style 3 Ca. / 1908 / Guitar For Sale

Carl and August Larson, also know as the Larson Brothers, were born in Sweden and emigrated to Chicago in the late 1880s. They built guitars sold under other companies names like Stahl, Prairie State, Euphonon, and Maurer. Their guitars are famous and sought after and considered equal in quality to Martin guitars. Their harp guitars were primarily made under the brand of Dyer. This Dyer Symphony Harp Guitar model is called 'Style 3', and only about a handful are known to exist. To call this an extremely rare vintage instrument would almost be an understatement. This is a "short-scale" harp guitar, with a 22.25" scale length. Undoubtedly, that's why it was created, and almost certainly inspired by Knutsen's 3/4 size harp guitars of 19-20" scale. There is some uncertainty about the exact dating of Dyer harp guitars. This Style 3 with number '614' on the interior label appears to be made around 1908. That would mean it is over 110 years old, and for that age it is still in good condition. The spruce top has two repaired cracks and the mahogany back also has a couple cracks. The tuners of the lowest three bass strings have been replaced. The corner of the tuner plate of the other two bass strings has been cut off to accommodate these newer tuners. This is a very unique opportunity to own such a rare, special and very well playable collector's item.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
