What brand of vintage guitar do I have?
I inherited a really old guitar which belonged to my great grandfather. He played this guitar in the Glee Club at the University Of Virginia in 1910. It is a small body acoustic guitar which has a black head. In the center of the top of the head there is a pearl star. It has a black fretboard with wavey pearl designs throughout the entire fretboard. There are no markings or serial numbers on this guitar. A friend of mine is fairly good with guitars but couldnt recognize it and did little research. I am interested in finding out what it is and if it is a valuable possesion. I will try to post a picture as soon as possible
A picture would DEFINITELY be helpful. This is just a guess, but it might be an old Washburn. Please go to Washburn Parlor Vintage Guitar and see if this look like your guitar. At least it is someplace to start.
