# 3 (Raymond) Fabricatore, Napoli - Italy Giovanni Battista Fabricatore continued building his six stringed guitars into the beginnings of the 19th century. This example has been left in its complete original state without any restoration. Except for the bridge, the entire guitar is in original condition. It is in need of restoration, but sometimes, important instruments such as this one should be left alone. The date is also important as this guitar is a link between the 18th and 19th centuries. One other model of the same date exists at the Museu di Basilea. Fruitwood back and sides stained black and a two piece spruce top.

# 1 (Raymond) Panormo, London - England for Huerta This guitar of Brazilian rosewood and spruce once belonged to Panormo's son-in-law, Huerta. It not only belonged to Huerta, but it was also his playing instrument. The guitar has a hand written label stating the guitar was made for Panormo's son-in-law: A.F. Huerta. According to James Westbrook, author of "The century that shaped the guitar" this label was put into the guitar in the 1860's by Edward Panormo who in turn sold the guitar. According to Westbrook, "The soundboard used for this guitar is certainly of older stock, possibly that 'exceptional' soundboard that a luthier reserves for a special client. The dendrochronology results dated the spruce soundboard at 1764 - 1765." This could easily have been some of his father stock "Vincenzo Panormo". The other interesting part to this guitar is the flush soundboard, definitely a special made guitar, as Panormo made almost all of his guitars with a standard fingerboard. "Madame Pelzer reiterates the fact that Panormo did make special one off guitars for clients" this being one of them. "She also states that a handsome inlaid instrument made especially by Panormo was presented as a gift to Sor", like the other Panormo in this collection. This guitar has been published in "James Westbrook, The Century That Shaped the Guitar".

# 004R Etienne Laprevotte, Paris - France The only other known examples of this model guitar is at the Barcelona Museum (Aguado's guitar) and one at the Paris museum. This was Laprevotte's top model with the enlosed ivory tuners and decorative table. This guitar is in complete original condition. It came from a private collection in Paris where it remained in storage for 40+ years, so the guitar avoided the hands of many potential restorers. This guitar's bracing consist of two long bass bars. Back and sides of figured Satinwood with the back carved from a solid piece. The label has a hand written date of 1844. This date corresponds to Laprevotte's known address at this time. Could this be his hand writing? The photo is of Aguado playing an instrument identical to this one in design, bridge type etc. The etching is a tad elongated making the instrument look slightly longer and thinner.
