1950s Sonora ***NEW PRICE***
A very rare Sonora D hole probably made some time in the 50s. The Sonora guitars appear to have come from the Franco-Sicilian luthiery tradition that includes Busato, DiMauro, Catania, Bucolo, Oliveri, etc. The Sonora's may have actually been built under contract by Catania (for more info see: Carmelo Catania). This guitar shares many of the features often found on Busatos and other guitars of Sicilian origin: an arched back, a three piece neck, and the builder's logo on the top.

The guitar is in very good condition for it's age. It has some damage to the rosette which was repaired. It also has a top crack in the same area which was also repaired. Otherwise, the guitar is very clean for it's age.

The body is 16" wide, 3 7/16" deep. The scale is very short at 630mm.

It has been fitted with a Dupont bridge and a DR tailpiece. Plays nicely with 3.4mm action.

Soundwise this guitar is a treasure! It has the old world mojo that only aged guitars have....it's very, very loud with tons of character!

Sonora guitars have gained recent notoriety in the hands of legendary Gypsy rhythm guitarist Hono Winterstein. He used a Sonora on the famous Live Jazz a Vienne DVD.

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