Thread Name: Tremeleuc (G. Trameleuc) guitars?
Subject: RE: Tremeleuc (G. Trameleuc) guitars?
Its fantastic to here from all you guys who own one of these instruments.
I have a AH-10 serial 70270. I brought it from a shop in Birmingham England. The new music exchange. This was in the early 80s I think I paid about 370 with a hard case. It as been my most treasured possession in all this time and as survived two marriages! I have played it for thousands of hours. The only problem I did have, the bridge split and had to be replaced. I tend to use heavy strings, but the Luther made a really good job of it and it looks almost authentic the bridge being slightly thicker.
I have compared it with very high end Martins and Taylor's but the Trameleuc always comes out on top, I believe the age of the instrument as enhanced the tonal quality. Mine sounds and looks like Philip Catherine,s (but without the cut out)
I would like to here anything about this instruments manufacture or history.
