first post. please be gentle 😉
pix are from a well known auction site. described as being 30's / 40's Rue d’Orgement era Busato. it does have the deeply arched back. can't tell anything about the top. is the sellers claim accurate ?
Looks pretty legit to me
Looks pretty Busato to me as well.
Very arched back, it's a soundhole shape used on a few . . .
Top looks a tiny bit sunk.
Tailpiece likely not orginial.
Tuners look pretty original.
Wondering if it was refinshed?
good grab if the price is low enough! (IMHO!)
@Wim Glenn thanks... most of the info I've been able to gather came from JazzManouche.de and they seem to focus on later and / or higher end models. (in a general sense I'd appreciate input on the info contained there)
@bbwood_98 thanks for your insights. agreed on the tail piece. would the original have been the BB style usually seen ?
tuners are Delaruelle & claimed to be OG. price is still being negotiated.
thanks again to all!
tail piece from a "1930's" Maison du Jazz claimed to be 100% original.
price negotiations have concluded @ $2350 delivered.
