Speaking of the Söderman guitar lute, here is some info and a picture of the guitar builder. Gottfrid was a pastor in the Elim parish and was world famous in Västernorrland for his well-sounding instruments. Excerpt from a discussion on AntikPrat: “By chance I ended up on the page Antikprat! My name is Kjell Söderman and Gottfrid Söderman was my grandfather! Västerhus is outside…
One of the guitars I work with is a fairly simple tailpiece Levin from 1936. A little better than normal as it has a little finer binding and very flammable wood in the side and bottom. The original was clumsily repainted with cellulose lacquer and the bottom was cracked along the middle seam. Glued a strip in rosewood between the halves and has…
An old project to be completed, an original renovation of a Levin from 1902. Very old Levin when the company started in 1900. The neck sold and new ribbons.
Offered cake and coffee and got some fun visitors 🙂 From left Per Marklund (future big cutter as Martin replica builder), my polar bear Björn Sohlin, Lars Lundgren and Greger Wikberg. On the wall Söderman hangs the lute, it must be fixed so that it can be played on.
One of my buddy renovations ended up with a photographer in Barcelona! Neck sale, special tuning, brass bands and some general repair. But what pictures! :-) Levin 1950 Model 13 Ambassador
Picked up an unknown package on bus goods and it turned out to be a gift from the moderator of the Forum Acoustic Guitar Forum that I am a frequent participant in. A very nice Gottfrid Söderman made around 1930 in Västerhus not far from Örnsköldsvik. It should be a house guitar in the room after a review ack Thanks Erik!
Perhaps the first GammelGuran to manufacture when the company is up and running, an order is basically ready. A Levin 1926 in harp format. See also Acoustic Guitar Forum.
Is running in the room. Per Hallgren talked about having a fan blowing on the dust and having an air purifier on the other side. Worked well with an extra respirator as well.
In addition to the large bench, I have one more workplace at the coffee table. Here I am intoning the American parlor guitar I just sent. Use my stroboscope tuner and files on the stable leg to get the tone to match (for these strings, admittedly, but still).
After a bit of fuss, you can now write www.gammelgura.se and end up on the blog page. Two new GammelGura guitars, numbers 6 and 8, are on their way to CJ Acoustics in Östervåla. Both two pearl pearls and one from the USA with a uniquely soft tone that makes everyone surprised 😉 A couple of pictures here American from about 1930 German…
