Circa late 1920s Stella made by Oscar Schmidt. This guitar is a rarity in that is in between the dimensions of typical grand concert and typical concert size dimensions.  The lower bout width is 14.0" (compared to 14.5" of a typical grand concert) and the scale length is 26.0" (compared to 26.5" of a typical grand concert).  This guitar has been rebuilt by Dan Lambert including repairs/enhancements to the original ladder bracing, retaining original wood whenever possible, neck reset, new ebony fretboard with slight radius, new position markers, new ebony pyramid bridge, new frets, and new rosewood nut and bone saddle. Also, a carbon rod has been inserted into the neck to enhance the structural integrity for another 100 years of playing.
