Regondi guitar in Japan, 1926
I originally wrote in 1997 about the guitars purchased in 1926 by Japanese collectors from Philip Bone, but never shared a copy of the original letter received from Bone listed details on the guitars. I stumbled across my correspondence with Nakano recently and realized he had sent me a copy of the letter. Here it is!
Thanks to Shintaro Yana sharing a link on Facebook to recent photos of the Stauffer guitar at Nobe Guitar Gallery.
