This photo archive is a good source for discovering lots of different vintage parlor and 12-fret guitar shapes, sizes and styles. These photos are mostly of guitars that have long been sold. Some buyers use the Archive to guide me toward the type of instrument they’re seeking. Others pick and choose specific features from different guitars and assemble a composite for me to custom build.
No matter what the reason, looking at old guitars is just darn fun.
