Default The Case of The mystery Neville guitar

Hey everyone!

My name is Jacob, and i am a parish priest in sweden.

One thing churches is usually very good at, is stocking up on an endless supply of guitars and stashing them away in cupboards and storage rooms. A sad thing, but sometimes a pretty fun kind of musical archeology when you stroll around a 100-year old workplace!


In one of our closets, i came across a Neville guitar.


It is acoustic, with beautiful pearl inlays on the neck, and the top seems to be some gorgeous kind of brightly-hued flamed woodtype
It has the serial number 900EQ and the master behind it has a signature with the initials P.C


I have searched the web, and found the current "neville" electric guitars but nothing about Nevilles acoustic guitars. Is it custom made? what does the "master" signature on the label mean? could this be the "real deal" so to speak?






Peace and love!


Jacob

Jacob, sounds like a nice find. Can you post any pictures? If there is a label in the sound hole, that would help. Thanks!

The label in the soundhole indicates it was built in -92 (it says "70 years", and then in roman numerals 1922-1992, so i guess its built in the last year)

The "master" has a signature thats Psomething Csomething
