Does anyone know anything about a Roderich Paesold 6string acoustic guitar?

I purchased it in a garage sale, it seems to be a quality instrument, but I can't find out any information about it.

Thanks Judy

: Well Judy, there are at least three of us looking to find out about these guitars,I have one ,some guy named Jonny and you,All asking the same question..
I have two theories,based on nothing more than these are great guitars no one built.
Ok ..They might be forgeries, I talked to the factory and there is no record of Paesold ever making these classical guitars.Paesold is a well respected name in fine stinged instaments, but NOT guitars,So some guitar maker somewhere might have lifted the name to help sell guitars. Or Paessold DID make these guitars, for a short time,either in his factory or subbed out somewhere, and then decided he wasn't happy with the product ,and decided to stay with what he did best.That would be very cool if we could prove that was the case,these would be collectable.Either way we have a pretty fine instrament if yours is anything like mine,
Good luck,
Rick

Re: Roderich Paesold

Sorry I hit the wrong button and left a blank follow-up

Now make it 6. I manage a Habitat for Humanity store and we just received a Model P180 roderich paesold guitar. I would like to get some idea of it's worth before I put it out for sale. Every dollar we make helps someone get their home. I'd hate to sell a $500 guitar for $5.00. I'll keep looking.

Thanks, Jeff

Re: Roderich Paesold

I finally found a little information. Roderich Paesold may not have made guitars, but Karl Hofner did. Hofner made high quality guitars and he bought out the Roderich Paesold company in the 1960's. It looks like he made some guitars and put the name of his newly aquired co. on them. With the connection to Hofner and Roderich Paesold, these should be fairly expensive guitars.

Re: Roderich Paesold

I also have a guitar labeled Roderich Paesold

Roderich Paesold
Model P 060 Made In Holland 52161938

It is a 6 string, no fancy look. Ok sound.

Re: Roderich Paesold

Hello,
Looking for value, info and comments on a PAESOLD Model#P230/12string acoustic guitar.

I bought it at a Goodwill Store last week for $40. It's in nice playable condition, showing the normal 12 string stress cracks. I took a chance, bought it, replaced the missing pegs, nut and strings.

Sounds great!

Regsrds,

Re: Roderich Paesold

I've just pulled a Roderich Paesold six string guitar serial number P100 out of a skip. It's in pretty bad shape, no machine heads, no nut, no pins, no saddle and half the lacquer has been removed because its just breaking off. But I'm going to put it back together to see what it sounds like. I'm off to Andys Guitar Shop in London to see if they know anything about these guitars.

Re: Roderich Paesold

i also got hold of one of these guitars it is a p 90 and i found it in my grandfathers garage..great instrument was wondering about its worth

Re: Roderich Paesold

Make that five people asking. I have had this old Paesold P230 12 String for many years now and I have recently just took it out tof the case. It's a very heavy guitar (but I am comparing it to my Taylor) and it seems to be made very well. It was still prettyy much in tune which amazed me since it was in the case for over ten years. One thing I remember about this guitar from years ago, was that it did not have a very large sound which I thought was odd for a 12 string. It may have been the strings I was using back them, so today I am buying new strings and things and see what she sounds like now. I e-mailed the people at www.paesold.com and hopefully I will get a legitimate responce. Good Luck to all.

Hi. These guitars were built by Egmond of Holland. This was their high end offering to the more inexpensive guitars they were known for. The had a very convoluted deal with Roderich Paesold violin to use the name only. They are very well built guitars and collectible.

Re: Roderich Paesold

i found something on this - Roderich Paesold is made by The Boosey & Hawkes. Their instrument division manufactures and distributes high quality musical instruments.

Roderick Paesold's 6-string guitar

I also have a Roderick Paesold, P160, six-string guitar, and have no information about it. If anyone found out
specifics about this instrument, I'd be very grateful. Thank you.

Roderich Paesold p100

Hey - I am another person with this mystery on my hands.

I just purchased the guitar for about 50 bucks. It is in great shape, and I was anticipating it would be worth something.

I think this is really intriguing... to think that no one knows anything about this instruments is really odd.

What if we shared pictures or something? Anyone - feel free to email me with additional info -- I'm very confused.

Funny, yesterday a trader from a flea market offered me such a guitar too. Actually I wouldn't had given it a notice because it seemed to me being a simple guitar (plywood top, simple headstock, bad glue marks on the inside etc.) wouldn't be this name. R. Paesold was a highly regarded fiddle and bow maker, whose instruments are upper class.
And why should he make guitars in the NL?
Seeing that these guitars aren't that rare, prooves me that they aren't something special.
May be it was simply a joint venture with a Dutch producer (Egmont??).

Hofner did noy only take

Hofner did noy only take over Roderich Paeshold (as you can read in an earlier post), but also the Dutch guitar producer Egmond, from Eindhoven (my hometown). They used the name Roderich Paeshold for a number of guitars made by Egmond (probably every Roderich Paeshold that is marked "made in Holland). I own a P180 that is in a rather poor shape, so I can't really say anything on the original quality.

Roderich Paesold P150- 12 string guitar

I just bought a Rodreich Paesold P-150 12 string guitar from a pond shop. It doesn't have a scratch on it. I put martin extra light strings on it and I am enjoying the sound. There are no blemishes in the finish, the neck is great and on wear on the fingerboard. It's hard to believe it could have been built in the "60's". Like everyone else I would sure like to learn more about it. Thanks for letting me post, Karl.

Query regarding P230

Also recently got hold of a P230, 12 string full body...

Anyone get hold of any legitimate information?

Please contact me on dean.cothill@gmail.com

Thank you.

lalo

yo tuve un guitarron de 12 cuerdas roderich paesold, comprado a fines de los '70s en argentina, no sonabamuy fuerte, pero era muyexacto y tenia una terminacion muy fina, con excelentes maderas, decia que era fabricado en holanda.

Roderich Paesold

I also ran into one of these mysteries by accident.
I own a P180
(not sure tough because it says: ''MODEL *blanco*'' but from some photos it seemed to be the P180).

But I would like to know if by any chance one of you has maybe already found out a bit more about these phantom guitars?

Regards,
Chris

p150

I myself just purchased this type of guitar model p150...any info would be good....but I read that the p60 were going for around 3,000$

Roderick Paesold

I´ve got a Roderick Paesold Made in Holland P-130 (6 strings guitar) in perfect conditions looks great and sound pretty well. It was my first acoustic dreadnough guitar I bought it in Argentina in mid 70¨s. I still have it.

I have owned a P 60 since

I have owned a P 60 since 1977. Stress cracks on the heel due to me doing the unthinkable and putting on steel strings in the early eighties. A few scratch marks on the body after being upset with my Mum and taking it out on my guitar. Poor thing went through abuse until I bought another guitar 8 years later. It's basically retired and hangs on the wall, but i picked it up last night and it still sounds good. I won't be getting rid of it due to it being my first guitar.

Roderich Paesold P 060, made in Holland

Hello @ all, sorry for rudimentair english...
I got mine in garage-condition, dirty, without strings, a lot cracks in the poor (?) laquer.
Without knowing what it got... sanded the complete front of body-top and head.
Did no new finish, let it light-raw, just cleanig, lowing the nut, putting new Strings on it.

String-level could be lower (now worry for me, bass player i am), but never had one with these low, deep, and loud voice !
(and the top is not too thin in my eyes!)
Would sell it.
To watch and try close Münster/A2, Germany.
Offers? (find me with real name on fb, abalone-dot-inlay-picture)

Best regards

12 string p 150 alsowwkcm

i got one too

Rod paesold guit

I know something about them . They are quality instruments made in holland for RP. They were the European answer to the law suit guitars of japan. They may have even been made better but that's really in the ear if the beholder . It's a shame they don't have a high resale but great you can find them cheap but make no mistake this is a quality guitar better than any into level Martin or Taylor these days . The bracing in them is unique . They are made by the same company that made hofner guitars

Roderich Paesold p060

I've got an RP p060.
Anyone who knows what it's worth and when it's made?
it's very fresh and beautiful :)
