1933 Gerome Round Hole

1933 Gerome Round Hole
The Gerome family has been making instruments in Mirecourt, the ancient center of French luthiery, for over a century. First known for their Neapolitan mandolins, the Gerome workshop eventually grew to the point where they were producing nearly 2000 guitars and mandolins a month. Over the decades Gerome instruments gained a reputation for their excellent quality, great tone, and aesthetically beauty. By the 1990s the Gerome brothers had all retired and passed their legacy onto their apprentice, Philippe Moneret.

This wonderful example is the roundhole model that Gerome produced in the 1930s. It features a round soundhole and a short 12 fret neck. Other unique features include the original ballerina tailpiece, an arched back, and a bridge with a bone saddle.

First and foremost, this guitar is a rhythm players dream! However, it's spunky "can do" attitude makes it a great backup lead guitar as well. Hat's off to Gerome for bringing this joyous instrument into the world.
