Gorgeous circa early 1930s Galiano labeled/Oscar Schmidt made Grand Concert model.  Stunning Koa with nice figuring and rare Galiano paper label.  Beautiful abalone purfling and rosette. 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 and tuning of the original ladder bracing, retaining original wood whenever possible for improved tone and structural integrity.  Slightly radiused new ebony fretboard installed. New frets. New ebony pyramid bridge and ebony end pin. New bone nut/saddle.  NOS ebony bridge pins.  New carbon rod has been inserted into the freshly reset neck to enhance structural integrity for another 100 years of playing.
