Beautiful, thanks for sharing with us!

I'm dying to get a classical Nylon string myself.

Well, I took her strings off so that I could have a look inside to try and find some numbers!  I have a new set of strings and a new set of candy apple red bridge pins to give her a little face lift, she's an old gal ya know and I think she wants some attention!  :-)

I'll betcha she'd do just fine with some light guage steels like she was built for. Where did you find the red pins?

Yeah, I should try some light guage steel strings, I bet she would sing sweet, not a lot of volume with nylons, though I like nylons on pretty babes! :-)

I found the pins on eBay, but they are available here too:

I saw a video, youtube or somewhere of a guy playing one almost like yours, steel strings, great sound. Thanks for the pins link.

Very nice!!  Were you able to get an idea on the age?  Too bad so much info was lost on these old Lyon & Healy guitars.

Toaster can hook you up!  This guitar is actually a steel string parlor guitar (note the end pin holes in the bridge).

Yall’ R crazy, that’s a beautiful classical nylon string guitar, my 21 days of experience tell me so. lol

I should know better than to make assumptions. The body shape and tuners really looked like a nylon string.

I did, briefly, speak to “toaster” about getting one but I feel that I need to get some experience on my D10S and the fret board before I move to another style. I just love the classical sound so no doubt I will have one at some point.

Blessings…

Heh heh heh... another one fooled by the slotted headstock!  Actually, that's the way they all used to look.  Take a gander at the new 2007 catalog, and see the new parlor guitar.  VERY nice guitar, but BOY are they pricey!
