Well, i wish i could add to your search but i just bought a palmer model, p41ne elect/acoustic. when I got it, it looked like it had been sitting in an attic for twenty years. I spent the best part of a day restoring it. It is a fantastic guitar. excellent sound, real bone and quality materials comparable to my vintage Takamine, the pickups are in the neck with staggard bridge. This must be a very old guitar there is an eagle holding a guitar neck. I also would also like to know more about it.

Re: Palmer handcrafted guitars

Hello.. I just bought a handmade guitar from James B. Palmer in Lake Wales, Fl. It was made in 1986. I cannot find anything about this maker either.. if its the same one. I've been playing guitar for 24 years and this thing plays beautifully. A little banged up.. I paid $300 at an antique shop. I just started researching this guitar tonight. Please drop me an email if anyone finds anything.

Handmade Palmer Guitar

I have a handmade acoustic guitar made by Jim Palmer. I knew him for a short time back in 1992 & 93. He was in his seventies at the time. I am in Pennsylvania (Pocono Mountains) and he lived here (was originally from here I believe) but he had lived in Florida for a time before this. He made some nice guitars. My wife purchased it from him as a surprise for me for Christmas. From what I remember, he had different hobbies throughout his life, instrument making being one of those. I remember he had dulcimers that he made also. I can't remember if he made other instruments. When I would go to his house he always had like 5 or 6 guitars there and I would eye them and wish I could buy them all. He enjoyed my picking and asked me to do several sing-a-longs at his house with small gatherings of friends. He was an interesting old guy. His mother was a fairly well known artist by the name of Edna Palmer Engelhardt. Here's a link to her obituary (which mentions him). http://articles.mcall.com/1991-09-09/news/2809526_1_art-teacher-east-coast-paintings .As a matter of fact I think I remember now that he came back to Pennsylvania because his mother had died and he inherited her estate. I'm certain that he's dead now because like I said he was already old back then. I just stumbled across your post and don't even remember how I got here. I was looking at karaoke equipment on amazon and somehow I got here. Anyway, I hope this helps. Andy

I have a Palmer Acoustic model p40lh (left handed) that I bought in Tulsa Oklahoma in 1993. It doesn't appear that they're made anymore. It has a decent sound, and about average materials and workmanship. I paid $150 for this instrument, and it still plays well, comparable to an Epiphone I just picked up that lists for more than twice that price.

Re: Palmer handcrafted guitars

I have a Palmer Les Paul copy. Ive been searching the web for info about the manufacturer for years without any decent result. I've been told it was made in Korea, and is a very rare instrument. It has great action and tone. I don't know any other guitar that sounds/plays better except maybe PARKER $$$.

Palmer Semi Hollow

I also Have a 1986 palmer guitar that plays really nice. Im wondering if it is the same one you have. And if so have you found out any new info over the last 8 years? If so Email me Ryan@gosupersteamer.com

James B Palmer mini
