Neil Harpe – the “Stella Guitarcheologist”

1916 Buegeleisen & Jacobson Fretted Musical Instruments


This 28 page profusely illustrated catalog reprint covers only the fretted instruments section, excerpted from Buegeleisen and Jacobson’s huge 1916 Musical Merchandise Catalog. B&J sold every musical product imaginable. Fretted instruments like guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, balalaikas and so forth comprised a very small portion of their entire offering. This is a good historical snapshot of B&J’s early 20th century product line.
