Paul Fischer - of Oxon.

  • Year:

    1984 - number 571

  • Body:

    Very attractive, straight-grained timber; uncertain of the origin as it doesn't look like Indian rosewood but has a grain and pore texture untypical of Brazilian ... very handsome though, with double-lined purflings throughout. The back has X-bracing.

  • Front:

    European spruce of lovely ambered colour with a rosette in black and reds framed with rope edgings. Rosewood bridge with matching tie-block decoration.

  • Tuners:

    Original tuning machines of unknown make, with Munich design side-plates and perloid buttons

  • Scale:

    65cm with 19 frets on ebony fingerboard

  • Neck Width:

    51.4mm at the nut with 42 mm string spacing.

  • Weight:

    1750 grams

  • Condition:

    Showing the most minor of marks only, this guitar has clearly been handled with great care and respect and is consequently in lovely condition - no cracks, no repairs, no significant marks and appears to be the original finish throughout. Really looks lovely.

  • Comments:

    This is one of Paul Fischer's fan-strutted guitars with X-format back bracing, made with fine quality timbers and looking very handsome.
    It has very balanced, refined sound; as you would expect ... and with good sustain and warmth with body resonance just above G.
    It is so pleasing to find older instruments of highly-respected makers that have been kept in such good condition; the age adding something to the quality of the sound too. Very reasonably-priced.
