Markneukirchen School, Guitar, c.1830s
This unlabeled guitar exhibits the slotted dome-shaped head that Austro-German makers had begun to utilize in conjunction with geared tuners. The top is spruce, and the back is solid slab cut maple. The non-adjustable neck, as opposed to one with a clock-key mechanism was a less expensive option for guitar consumers. The ebonized maple bneck has a squared neck joint and cone heel, with an ebonized fingerboard that extends over the body, with twelve brass bar-frets to the body and 19 overall. The top is supported with one straight brace below the soundhole, one straight brace above the bridge area, no bridge plate, and two straight braces above the soundhole, and an ebonized mustache pin bridge. Measurements: total length 908mm, length of back 450mm, lower bout 290mm, upper bout 233mm, scale 632mm or 24-7/8″, nut width 1-13/16″ or 46mm. No case included.
