Louis Panormo 1827 19th Century
Back and Sides Brazilian Rosewood
Width at nut 50 mm
Scale length 63.5 cm
A nice example from England's favoured maker of the nineteenth century. Panormo was Sor's recommendation from England. His instruments, which are in the "Spanish style" are similar in shape and interior construction to the earlier instruments of the Pages workshop in Cadiz. It is similarly fan strutted and has a good range of tonal colour and volume. The sides are deep giving this guitar a very good bass response for its size. The top, unusually, has no cracks and the Brazilian back and sides are lovely. The head is a later replacement with lovely machine heads by Rance.
A note to say how pleased I am with the Raimundo 128. It came with us for a week's holiday to Suffolk and I have been getting to know it. The playing has been coming back to me after a long interval; the guitar is very responsive with a warm singing tone.
