Product Description

By Oscar Schmidt, maker of Stella, of Newark, NJ. Their instruments were marketed under a number of different names, with Stella being the best known, due to Leadbelly and his famous, incredible 12-string. This guitar is a rare jewel, their highest grade but in a smaller than usual size. At 12 3/4" wide, it's the same as a Martin Size 1. As were many of their higher end models , this one is all koa. It's beautifully inlaid with a vine for the fretboard and the nicest inlay I've ever seen on the pickguard. It appears to be fully original and in in better than excellent condition.
