Thread Name: Tremeleuc (G. Trameleuc) guitars?
Subject: RE: Tremeleuc guitars?
I have a tramaleuc. I bought it in Champagne Illinois in 1988 while on tour with the musical Big River. I have never been able to find any info till I saw this thread. The guitar is a jumbo acoustic, no pickguard, ebony tailpiece, split ivory bridge, rosewood fingerboard with no markers, quilted maple headstock laminate, solid cedar or dark spruce top (incredible cross-grain, and indian rosewood back and sides (beautifully figured. Satin finish...and incredible tone, big, deep without being too bottom heavy.The body binding is quadruple wood. All in all, this guitar is a stunning piece. The soundhole paper is all in french, I thought it was French Canadian, as it mentions SAGA, though it says St Brieuc France. It was over a grand on the tag, but it was in stock way too long and I got it out the door for 5 hundred witha jumbo Guild hard case thrown in for free. It's the cream of my collection of over 80 acoustic and electric axes. Very rare. If anyone has info, I would appreciate it, especially a PDF of the catalogue. I am at thanks (I am in California).
