Circa 1920s Stella Grand Concert Model
Back & Sides:
A great example of a Stella labeled/Oscar Schmidt made Grand Concert model!

This includes repairs/enhancements to the original ladder bracing, retaining orginal wood whenever possible for improved tone and structural integrity. French polish refinished backs/sides. Original finish on neck. Original "mother of toilet seat" fretboard veneer in great shape. Slightly radiused new Indian Rosewood fretboard installed under fretboard veneer. New frets. Original gold sparkle trim intact. Original kerfing. New Ebony bridge and Ebony end pin. NOS bridge pins. 2 5/16" string spacing at saddle. 10 1/4" upper bout. Approx. 3.0" top crack repaired. New carbon rod has been inserted into the freshly reset neck to enhance structural integrity for another 100 years of playing. HSC included.
