Database/history survey for Almcrantz

Hi All,

I am attempting to build a data base of owners and compile as much history about Almcrantz guitars as possible. This is not for a money thing. I want to preserve as much as I can about these fine old instruments and Gerhard Almcrantz.

Once I get it all together, I’ll send what I have to any of you so that we can, together, keep the history alive.

Thank you for your time and please feel free to email me at larry@mountaininstruments.com (not a music store!) Please put Almcrantz in the subject line.

Hi Larry,
If you are still building a database for Almcrantz guitars, here is another contribution. My 1895 model is very austere, unlike the lavishly inlaid models I have seen posted. I believe it to be of solid construction, spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, but the back is veneered with a one-piece rosewood over-lay. The instrument is un-bound, with a marquetry soundhole. I think the neck is walnut.It has the patented bolt-on neck, and a patented bridge held on with three hand-wrought wing nuts. The production # is 6015.

Sincerely,

I have an Almcrantz patented July 16th, 1895 - Chicago Ill. The guitar has been in the family since my father purchased it form my great aunt around 1952-53. While it has suffered some abuse over the years, it still retains its physical beauty, and plays and sounds unlike any guitar I have ever owned. It is indeed a wonderful instrument. Anyone know anything about it's value?

Hi,
I've had an Almcrantz guitar since 1983, which was beatifully restored in '83-'84 by Chicago based luthier, Ed Reynolds. The tone quality and workmanship are absolutely splendid. The Almcrantz name is synonymous with beauty and detail, as I was told by a guitar trader in the Chicago area. I'm delighted to have found this instrument, which at the time somewhat of an orphan. The true beauty was not difficult to see, and the restoration has been worth the time and expense. I'll try to figure out how to get photos on line, as I'm digitally impaired.
