Topic: Lost guitar
My lost guitar was constructed at The Juan Roberto Guitar Works in Phoenix, AZ in the early 70's.
She's a six-string beauty with a rosette inlaid with snail shells, a slot-head and an oil, not lacquer finish.
She is very heavy due to the infamous double back patterned after Maccaferri, glued in with a substance not unlike concrete which defeated the purpose of the double backs resonance. I imagine the instrument is still in one piece unless someone made the effort to remove that double back, or fashion it into a coffee table or planter.
I left Arizona in '78 to move to California. Foolish youth that I was, I sold it at my garage sale, in a blue and orange foam traveling case.
I would love to have her back. Please reply to this post. thank you, db
