Retrofret Stock # 2771. Lyon & Healy American Conservatory Model Harp Guitar, c. 1910, made in Chicago, natural varnish finish, Brazilian rosewood body, spruce top,, brown original canvas case. A rare and beautiful Lyon & Healy harp guitar in spectacularly fine original condition. While the body is relatively small for a double necked instrument, the sound is full and lush with six sub-bass strings contributing a host of overtones if desired.Overall length is 38 1/4 in. (97.2 cm.), 14 1/2 in. (36.8 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/4 in. (10.8 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). We rarely find instruments this old in this sort of condition�it looks to have been rarely played in 90+ years. There is a repaired crack through the heel block and a couple of small rosewood grain cracks in the area. Otherwise, the instrument is unaltered and the finish is exceptionally well preserved. Excellent + Condition.
