1942 Reali Depose

There's something magic that happens once a guitar gets over 60 years old, and this wonderful Reali guitar is testament to that fact! Built in Paris in 1942, this Maccaferri inspired instrument has a deep, mature tone with a dry, sparking high end and a rich, filling bass register. It has phenomenal projection and its short scale, 12 fret neck and low, 3mm action make it a breeze to play.

It features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with parallelogram fret markers, beechwood binding, and a stylish pearloid pickguard. Hardware includes a set of original three on a plate tuners (which turn backwards) and a DB tailpiece. Reali's featherweight, four brace design is supremely resonant, producing surprising volume with very little effort from the player. While many instruments of this era have little or no labeling, Reali made certain that this guitar would be attributed to none other than himself by burning his name into the upper treble area of the top and on the back of the neck. There is also a paper label inside the guitar.

This instrument is in very good condition. It has one crack running along the lower bass side of the back which has been secured with glue. There is also a top crack that runs from the tailpiece to the bass side of the bridge which has been cleated. The top may have had some sort of refinishing work done at some point as it has some discoloration in various spots. As you'd expect, there are numerous dings and scratches on the body. The frets are new and guitar was recently setup with excellent playability.

Here's a chance to own a guitar with great vintage mojo that is not just a great sounding instrument, but a fashion statement as well!
