1984 Paul Fischer Alpine Spruce Indian Rosewood

Category:Classical Guitars
It's time for me to start whittling down my arsenal of instruments, so I'm offering this in the hope that it will find an appreciative owner. I contacted Paul Fischer for details. His response: Many thanks for the e-mails. Having studied your fine photographs I feel sure the wood on your guitar is Indian Rosewood and the neck is Brazilian Cedar with an ebony fingerboard. Machine heads are German-Lansdorfer type. More information can be gleaned from my new book 'Let the Wood speak' from Amazon & on Kindle. I hope I have been of help and may I wish you a happy 2019. Paul A second email from Mr. Fischer: The top (soundboard) of your guitar is European spruce, Picea Abies. The only and best spruce from high in the Alps. From the same region as Stradivari gathered his wood. Paul You'll notice a slight 'rippling' on the top below the bridge. I've consulted with a few notable luthiers and have been assured that this is a benign, normal 'conforming' of the very thin top with the underlying braces. A small piece of the binding on the bridge around which the 1st string is looped has broken off (I have the piece, it seems as if it can easily be glued back on). There are a few small fingernail scratches on the top near the bridge, left by my uncle, the previous owner who was an amateur and didn't play it much. It's been well-cared-for along with my vintage steel-strings ('36 Martin D 18, '34 Gibson Jumbo, '33 Gibson L5, Larson Bros. circa 1918, etc..), but rarely played as my reputation as a studio guitarist in Nashville is based on my steel-string playing. The bridge saddle seems a bit high to me, but I've left it as is to leave some flexibility to the next owner to set up the action according to his/her taste.
