1950s Paul Beuscher

1950s Paul Beuscher

This guitar is one of a number of guitars sold under "Paul Beuscher" label during the 1950s. Beuscher sold the guitars of numerous luthiers who were active in mid-century Paris, with the most famous being Favino and Castelluccia. These instruments were usually rebranded with Beucher's own label which is the case with this instrument.

This guitar features mahogany back and sides, spruce top, and a mahogany neck.

This instrument has a tone very reminiscent of Busato's guitars which are known for their clear, strong fundamentals and exuberant projection. It has a crisp, clear high end which produces stinging leads and a crunchy, tight rhythm sound that is just full of character and mojo.

This guitar has had some repair work over the years. There are several cleats on the inside securing one side crack and a back crack. Additionally, the lining on the bass side of the guitar was replaced with newer kerfed lining and it looks like two braces were either replaced or just added to the preexisting ones. The bass side of the guitar has a section where it appears that a roughly 4" area of the outer layer of the laminate was patched. It plays like a new guitar with very supple 3.2mm action and has new frets.

This instrument is a great choice for both the vintage guitar lover and the practical minded player as it has the character and vintage tone of a mature instrument while having the price and playability of a new guitar. It's tough to go wrong with this one.

This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
