This standel guitar is made in the sixtees in USA California , it is a very rare , vintage and collectable guitar. The tsumura family is a very famous collector family in japan. Tsumura wrote a book the tsumura collection book only about collectable guitars and other collectable music instruments. I have this book in my home.
It shoes on the last page 2 standel guitars. His son is holding a standel guitar and the second standel guitar you can see on the right hand side of his son.
The book is also describing those 2 standels on the last page. My standel is in sunburst color. This standel is not refreted what means it has still the original bindings on the neck and of course the original frets! The serial number of this standel is on the label inside the body.
It shoes the number 1012 which means it is the 12. S guitar of standel they built.
I got this informatiom from a very famous guitar dealer. Standel did not built so many guitars like fender or gibson as example. It still has the original groover tuning machines. This standel has an incredable jazz sound.
A warm and long sustain tone. The neck is straight and comfortable to play. The action is perfect , not high , rather low.If you like the sound of pat martino or jim hall this guitar has exactly that sound. Pat martino used to play a standel guitar from the 60 tees in the past as well. Of course this guitar has dings and dangs , because it is an old guitar , but it is not worn down. The output jack is changed on the side. I didnt like the output jack is under the pickguard.
This is an incredible chance to get a real vintage jazz guitar! If you dont play guitar? No problem , it is also a collectors guitar. The favino gipsy guitar was received proper and intact.
