About the Stromberg Voisinet 1920’s
Guitars from the Stromberg Voisinet company were used to be sold through catalogs. The 1920’s Stromberg Voisinet instruments had a unique design to attract buyers and were very well made (given their inexpensive price).
This ladder braced Parlor has mahogany back/ sides and poplar neck with bound rosewood fretboard. It’s a fancy guitar with multicolored purflings around the top edge and sound hole. On the top of the guitar we find a very nice tropical decal. Completely original, except for the oversized bridge and tuners.
If you compare the Stromberg Voisinet with similar guitars from the time (Harmony, Regal etc.) These Stromberg Voisinet guitars have pretty bulky bracings. This means that they take heavier strings than other “typical” parlors from the era.
Comes with a very nice original hardshell case, needs some work, and National string packages from the 1930’s.
