National Institute Of Allied Arts Parlor Guitar 1930’s
You are bidding on An interesting and cool Parlor Guitar labeled "The National Institute of Allied Arts."It is a bit rough, but useable condition. I believe the pick guard is missing and the body has been accented with flat black paint to give it an aged look or to match the neck (I bought this from a local estate in the condition you see). The bridge looks to have been replaced, the shoulder strap anchor on the body is missing and I am not sure, but I think the metal anchor plate may not be original. The tuning knobs and hardware and the body appear to all be original. I cannot find much info on this specific model, but these parlor guitars were made in the mid to late 30's. The back has what looks like a split, but it is not loose and does not flex so it may just be shrinkage of the wood from low humidity. I have done the best to my ability to describe this guitar, but I am not an expert. This auction has NO RESERVE and a LOW starting price. If you have any questions about this item, please ask. I am always happy to combine shipping w possible. Thank you and !!! Shipping wt: 6 lbs. U.S. Shipments ONLY via UPS Dimensions: 36-3/8" long x 13-1/4" wide x 3-3/4" deep at bottom of body.
