1934 Maccaferri Orchestre Serial Number 372

Without internal resonator. Rosewood back and sides, Spruce top, Ebony board. This guitar comes from the transitional period. Mario is gone, and without anybody at the "creative helm", the guitar workshop continues to produce [albeit, at at reduced output] and experiment. this one is likely to be one of the last "Maccaferri" 12 fret D hole, the internal resonator having been abandoned, as too complex and expensive in construction... the guitar shows it's gypsy life.. the top has several repaired cracks, the guitar is original , save for the replaced bridge.. Macs are quite rare in any condition... this one produces a clear even tone and is quite lovely...I am given the green light to lower the price on this great guitar that has been sleeping instead of being played.. from $17.5K it is now reduced to.. NHSC SOLD (BEST OF)
