1936 Vivitone Acousti Guitar EXC+ Well, I never thought I'd part with this gem from the "Loar Collection" but here goes. I've seen and owned a number of these but this is not only the nicest but also the only one I've run across with triple WBW binding on both the top and the back. These 'brainchildren' of Lloyd Loar did not prove commercially successful but have unique innovations. The back is recessed and has f-holes and contributes to the sound of the guitar. This is also the only specimen that I have known that has the "fairy frets" touted in some of the Vivitone ads. One need only a light touch rather than having to push hard to make a clear note. Granted, it takes a bit of getting used to. The tasteful sunburst on top and back extends also to the sides. Art deco abounds from the head stock to the tailpiece. Original tuning pegs. There are no cracks anywhere (these typically have a heel crack). This is a stunning example of a rare beast. The original hard shell case is in pretty nice shape.
Price: $4500.00
