Artur Lang Archtop Maple Spruce 1950s

Artur Lang wordt ook wel beschouwd als de grote "onbekende legende" onder Duitse archtop-gitaarbouwers, een echte "hidden gem". Artur werd in 1909 geboren in een van de beroemdste centra voor snaarinstrumenten in Europa, Schönbach. Daar ging hij naar de "School of Musical Instrument Making" en ging in de leer bij verschillende lokale meesterbouwers.

Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog vestigde hij zich uiteindelijk in Garmisch en begon hij opnieuw in zeer kleine aantallen gitaren te maken. Binnen slechts een paar jaar was hij in staat om een ​​enorme reputatie te verwerven bij een kleine groep professionele gitaristen. Tussen 1949 en 1972 bouwde Artur ongeveer 800 gitaren in zijn eenmanswerkplaats.

Dit archtop-model stamt uit de jaren 1950 en is gebouwd met gevlamd esdoorn voor de achterkant en zijkanten en sparrenhout voor het bovenblad die tevens is voorzien van 'ringen' aan de zijkant. Deze ringen zijn niet puur esthetisch, maar dienen ook een functie; ze verstijven de zijkanten van de body, vergelijkbaar met de verstevigingen van een vliegtuigromp.

Na ruim 60 jaar biedt deze gitaar nog een fijne speelbaarheid en dito klank, zowel akoestisch als versterkt met behulp van de Shadow Zoller 'floating' pickup. Deze pickup kan worden bediend met een volumeknop, toonknop en toonschakelaar. Hij heeft ook de sporen die passen bij decennia lang spelen. Daarnaast is de hals ontdaan van de lak en heeft hij een andere brug en staartstuk. Al met al verkeert hij in goede conditie en wordt geleverd in een koffer met TFOA paspoort.

Artur Lang is also considered the great "unknown legend" among German archtop guitar builders, a real "hidden gem". Artur was born in 1909 in one of the most famous string instrument centers in Europe, Schönbach. There he attended the "School of Musical Instrument Making" and apprenticed with several local master builders.

After World War II, he finally settled in Garmisch and started making guitars again in very small numbers. Within just a few years, he was able to gain a huge reputation among a small group of professional guitarists. Between 1949 and 1972, Artur built approximately 800 guitars in his one-man workshop.

This archtop model is from the 1950s and is built with flamed maple for the back and sides and spruce for the top, which also features 'rings' on the side. These rings are not purely aesthetic, but also serve a function; they stiffen the sides of the body, similar to the reinforcements on an aircraft fuselage.

After more than 60 years, this guitar still offers great playability and ditto sound, both acoustically and amplified using the Shadow Zoller 'floating' pickup. This pickup can be controlled with a volume knob, tone knob and tone switch. It also has the traces to match decades of playing. In addition, the neck has been stripped of the lacquer and it has a different bridge and tailpiece. All in all it is in good condition and comes in a hardshell case with TFOA passport.
