A classic example of an original Stella grand concert sized model made by theOscar Schmidt company in its Jersey City, NJ factory.  Circa early 1920s.  This is a wonderful sounding guitar and is a sought after model with the sought after spruce/mahogany wood combination.  Original yellow Stella paper label in excellent condition. This guitar has been rebuilt by Dan Lambert to enhance its full potential while maintaining as much vintage originality as possible. This includes repairs/enhancements to the original ladder bracing, retaining original wood whenever possible, for improved tone and structural integrity.  Slightly radiused new Ebony fretboard, new large frets, new rosewood bridge, new bone nut, new bone saddle. New plastic cream colored bridge pins. Original tuners.  Repaired top crack spanning from below bridge to end of lower bout and repaired side/back cracks. A carbon rod has been inserted into the freshly reset neck to enhance structural integrity for another 100 years of playing.
