Thread: J. Thibouville-Lamy Tenor Guitar-UK

    Default J. Thibouville-Lamy Tenor Guitar-UK

    This old circa 1920s tenor is for sale in the UK and it looks to me that the action is very high. There was a thread here about one branded Jetel and that mentioned the cleats on the back which is replicated here and makes me think they were original to the build. I can't tell if the tailpiece has a problem or just the strings hanging out. The thread I will post had a suggestion that it is a Regal build but my opinion, is that it is a Regal knock off. I have a European tenor guitar sold by Windsor in the UK that is clearly influenced by the Epiphone Recording series tenor guitar and copying US made instruments was commonplace.

    Perhaps, one of the UK members might like to buy it but it is collection only from London- the code suggestions somewhere like Tooting but that will keep the price down a bit.

    Cleats on the back feature on a 19thC 6 string luthier built guitar we have, which is a maple bodied 'moustache bridge' parlour style made in France. Something about the thread guitar cleats look to me like a repair to hold the back halves together - from the photos they look close together, different sizes and kind of clumsy.

    Sold for 83. As for being able to buy it, the return rail fare from these parts to London is over 300 so I always treat London as a different country. It’s usually cheaper to fly to the rest of Europe.
