1920’s RICHTER Decal ‘Parlor’ Guitar

I love this guitar! This is an early 1920’s RICHTER guitar.  The boom years for The Richter Mfg. Co. was the 1930’s with stenciled or screen printed or undecorated sound board all birch ‘parlor’ guitars.  This guitar is decorated with decals, and years of playing has given this guitar the patina that drips character.


This guitar has been lovingly restored by my good friend, John Davis and his talented staff at The Guitar Repairers, Brisbane, Australia.  It has been X-braced, and has had a neck reset, and a re-fret.  The finger board is the original hardwood, and it has had a new ebony bridge handmade to the design true to the original. Never seen another.
