Guitarsite Forums Discussion Popular Topics Tatay Guitars Dating a Tatay guitar


I recently received a Tatay classical guitar as a gift, it is in poor condition, but it still plays pretty well. I’m trying to date it, and I cannot find a date written or stamped on the inside. My only 2 clues are the internal sticker, which shows it to be post-1942 (but before the sons took it over, and the label changed again?). My label is Fabrica de Guitarras, Bandurrias y Laudes, Vincente Tatay, Literato Azorin No.13, Valencia (Espana). My label does not say Hijos on it anywhere.

And the back of the headstock is stamped V. Tatay, Made in Valencia Spain

Here is a link to the sticker that is in my guitar:

Thank you for any insight you can offer.
