Supertone / Koa Parlour / 1930 / Koa / Guitar For Sale
As parlour guitars are becoming more popular, unusual vintage examples are becoming more desirable. This Supertone instrument, made in Chicago by Harmony, has a beautifully figured all Koa body with classy but understated rope binding and rosette. It features a Mahogany neck, Ebony bridge and enough of the Supertone label is in tact to make it recognisable. Tonally the guitar has quite a deep sound, very smooth and surprisingly loud for it’s size - great for ragtime and country blues picking. The neck feels comfortable and the action is easy to play. The guitar seems to be in all very good, original condition, with a couple of tightly repaired top cracks. As well as being a lovely guitar in it’s own right, it would work really well in a studio situation or be a fantastic travel guitar. It comes in a non original hard 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.
