Product Description

Richard Jacob “Weißgerber” was one of the most creative, innovative, but certainly the most versatile guitar maker of the 20th century. Neither in Germany nor in the world has there been or is there any other master whose work, in its multiplicity, would be comparable to that of Richard Jacob. The variety of his models, their shapes and designs are unique. Undoubtedly, he is one of the great artists of his guild. “Weißgerber” guitars like the instruments of other major guitar builders have something special. This unique Strad-model guitar was built in 1947. The penciled inscription on the crossbar above the sound hole has the serial number 36.1/7. Richard Jacob in particular used the instruments of the Strad-model series to experiment with different construction methods. In contrast, the instrument shown here is more similar to the concert models which are typical for this period. However it shows an individual shape which is inspired by Italian baroque guitars. The appearance of the instrument is characterized by the light and natural polished maple and spruce together with the Galalith binding. Top and back are fluted, the V-profiled neck is also made of maple. The finish and the tuning machines are original. There is a very well repaired crack on the right side of the top (between bridge and the binding). The original hard-shell case is included.
