Here’a 97-year old instrument that any player or collector would be proud to own. A 16" archtop with carved maple back & sides and the rare snakehead peghead, used by the legendary jazz guitar pioneer, Eddie Lang. This instrument is in excellent original with all original hardware
The single bound body is finished in a dark cherry sunburst and features the adjustable truss rod, ebony bridge and trapeze style tailpiece. The most unique feature of this “Loar-Era” guitar is the inclusion of the “Virzi Tone Producer," a Loar innovation favored by many players for its smoothing effect on the tone quality. To find one in this condition with the Virzi-Tone producer still intact is rare in this day and age.
The tone of this instrument is unique, with great definition and has been favored by both Blues and Jazz performers.
The condition is excellent, with all original parts as well as being devoid of cracks or large abrasions.
With original hard case.
