Domingo Esteso, Madrid, 1929. Domingo Esteso Lopez, born in San Clemente in the province of Cuenca in 1882, is one the most famous and respected classical and flamenco guitar makers of the early 20th century. In the 1890s, he began as an apprentice in the shop of Manuel Ramirez in Madrid, working along side such great Spanish luthiers as Santos Hernandez and Modesto Borreguero. Later on in 1917 Domingo Esteso openend his own workshop at calle Gravina 7 together with his wife Nicolasa Salamanca who applied the finish to the guitars. In 1926, Esteso’s nephew Faustino Conde joined the workshop of Domingo Esteso as did Mariano Conde in 1929. They stayed with him until his death in 1937 during the Spanish civil war.

WAYNE guitars

can anyone help with the likely provenance and value of a Wayne guitar model W-30. I'm still looking on the web however information about this brand of acoustic guitar is about as scarce as hens teeth. Any relevant information would be appreciated.

Wayne guitars

Does your guitar have a slightly yellow label on the inside with a drawing of a mountain? Also, is the word conscience misspelt? Is there any mention on the label where the guitar was made? Is it steel string or nylon?

Wayne Guitar Company Pty Ltd - acoustic guitar Model W20

Hello Bruce

I am enquiring on behalf of a friend who has asked me to research her guitar. The guitar was made for Wayne Guitar Co and has a yellow label inside with a drawing of a mountain. Also the word conscience is misspelled. It is nylon string and there is no mention of where the guitar is made.
Any ideas? Would love to hear from you with any information.

Regards

Diana

Takamine guitar

Hi, Bruce,
Yes the label is slightly yellow and almost of new appearance. The word concience (sic) is misspelt and there is the drawing of a rather more precipitous mountain than Fuji on the label as well. There is no reference given as to city or provence where the guitar was made only, that it was made in Korea (indicated by a gold coloured 15mm x 20 mm apx. label on the headstock) and that the instrument was made expressly for the Wayne Music and Electrical Co. Melbourne, Australia. The model of the guitar is listed just below the mountain and given as model W-30. The guitar is a classical nylon, generally in very good condition, except for the attempted repair of the bridge. The bridge has been snapped and patrially broken away then unsucsessfully repaired using an epoxy? adhesive then broken away again, or so it appears. I have been trying to find a seven inch + ready made bridge or have a go at making one up appears 6" plus bridges are all the go now. Perhaps you could assist me in locating a suitable bridge Bruce? Regards, Peter.

Takamine / Wayne

Hi Peter, I`m unsure why your guitar has a Made in Korea sticker, Takamine guitars are Japanese. I wonder if Korea was considered OK due to anti-Japanese sentiment here in the 1960`s? I think the early Wayne/Takamines have no mention of country of origin. The Wayne Company was founded by Harry West and his son Sid in Melbourne. Harry had a post-war band called Rudy Wayne and the.....somethings, anyway, you see where the name Wayne came from, his stage name. I believe most of the Wayne guitars were nylon strings but have seen a few steel string dreadnoughts pop up on e-bay, I read of a 12-string Wayne that was left in a car in the summer sun and the neck separated from the body which brings me to your repair job! The broken bridge should have been completely removed properly with hot air to melt the glue, very slowly and very carefully. Finding a 7 inch bridge? I`d look at all the sellers of guitar related parts on e-bay and ask them all, cost nothing to ask. I found the bone saddle for a 7-string acoustic was a perfect match for my Guild F-412, cost me $1.00, good luck.

Wayne/Takamine Guitar

I have a W-10 Wayne guitar with the same label, the image of the mountain (no mention of Takamine) with the words "MADE EXPRESSLY FOR WAYNE MUSIC MELBOURNE - AUSTRALIA" above the image of the mountain and "We produced this instrument by hand with great care and concience (sic) for you - the player" below. On the back of the headstock there is also a small label saying " Made in Korea" as well as a Brash's Chadstone sticker, which is no doubt where the guitar was purchased when I was a lad, before Chadstone became such a huge mega-shopping center. This guitar has been sitting at my family home for as long as I remember, it's a sweet 3/4 size nylon string acoustic. Given the information provided in this thread, I'm not sure why it has a 'made in Korea' label. Has Takamine ever had a Korean factory? Here is a link to a picture of the label:

Wayne Guitar

I have a Wayne guitar at home with the yellow label of the mountain and the conscience missspelt.

It is a steel string guitar and the model number appears to be W1-15 I think as it is quite faded. At the top of the neck of the guitar also has a gold label saying made in and the rest I cant make out.

I am trying to find some history or value of this guitar. its in very good nick

cheers

Wayne guitars

That mountain is Mt. Takamine in Japan. The guitar makers nearby took their name from the English spelling. That label makes it a Takamine guitar. Looks like some early Wayne guitars featured the name Wayne on the headstock and the mountain label did not mention Takamine or Japan, then there was a change, Wayne on the headstock and Made in Japan appeared on the mountain label, later the name Takamine appears on the mountain label too, then around 1972/3 the headstock is changed to Takamine and Made Expressly For Wayne Music & Electrical Co, Melbourne. I own one of these. Wayne also made electric guitar pick-ups used on some Maton and, no surprises, Takamine guitars. Takamine began to export to USA in 1975, so these guitars pre-date their international success. I saw a 1975 Takamine for sale in USA on e-bay and it had the same yellow mountain label. I`ve seen the mountain referred to as Mt Fuji in some discussion but when you put together where the factory is and the use of the name Takamine it starts to make sense.

wayne guitar

I have a Wayne steel string acoustic with the yellow label with mountain etc,with the words "made expressly for the Wayne Music co pty ltd,Melbourne,Australia." "We produced this guitar with great care and concience for you-the player",on the label it has model WJ-79 and inside the sound hole is stamped march 19-1979.It also has WAYNE in gold on the headstock,what looks to be a copy of a Gibson hummingbird design scratchplate but not sure if that is original,what looks to be rosewood or a similar dark timber on the back with a lighter coloured timber triangular shaped insert in the middle going from the neck right down the back which looks great!I have had a few acoustics over the years but none have come close to the beautiful tone of this one.From memory I think I got it from a music shop in Box Hill circa 1989 for about $200.

1972 Takamine

I have a 1972 Takamine D-70 nylon string classical guitar. I am the original owner. The label inside the guitar reads; Made Expressly For Wayne Music And Electrical Company,Melbourne,Australia. I have found that Takamine made guitars for Wayne sometime in the late 60`s with the name "WAYNE" on the headstock and sometime in the early 70`s changed to "TAKAMINE" on the headstock, like my guitar. These guitars were coming to Australia some years before Takamine began to ship to USA

1967 Meiko Classical Guitar by Matano

In 1969 I purchased a Meiko classical guitar, made and signed by Masuro Matano. I still use it today for recording. I have found very little about the history of this guitar, nor about its value today. Among my Martins and Taylors, this is still my favorite piece of musical artistry. Anyone have any contacts or information? Thanks

Meiko Guitar

Larry,

I have one also. I bought it new in 1968 at the suggestion of my guitar teacher. Mine is an A9-R and it is still like new and plays beautifully. From what I can see, they must be quite rare. I never thought about it until recently and decided to see if there were any others out there. I love mine and will keep it as a treasure. Probably pass it along to my son. Take care and enjoy yours.

Body: Indian rosewood
Front: European spruce
Tuners: David Rodgers high quality tuners
Scale: 65cm
Neck Width: 52mm at the nut
Condition:
This guitar is a very fine Hauser I reproduction made more than likely with the 1940 Hauser in mind that Julian Bream has played. The condition is extremely good with only very slight playing marks. All French-polished and extremely handsome.
A very rare opportunity to acquire a fine guitar from such a legendary performer as Julian Bream who has owned the instrument since it was made.
