Description
A really rare Bronson slide guitar built in Detroit Michigan back some time in the 30's. She's in really good overall condition for a guitar that is about 85 years old. Appears to be all original to our visual inspection, as is the case original and in quite remarkable shape. All the latches and the handle are intact and functioning properly. The guitar itself doesn't have any breaks or cracks, and does not appear to have had any major repairs done. The bridge is lifting up and will need to be glued back down, also there is a slight warp on the top of the body, both of these flaws can be seen in our included photo's (the slight warping is the last picture). Inside the case there is some original sheet music made by the Bronson Music Corporation circa 1935 and also 2 finger picks and a solid brass roll slide which appears to be close in age to the age of this slide guitar.  All of which is included and add to the awesome history of this guitar. We are looking to find this awesome vintage slide a good home! These cool guitars have a very distinct woody tone that slide players love.The Overall length of this cool guitar is 36 1/2 inch, 13 1/4 in wide at lower bout, 9 1/2 inch upper bout and 3 3/4 inch depth at side, Scale length is 24 inches and the width of nut is 1 3/4  inches. Very clean overall, very little wear and no cracks evident.. Bridge looks original as does the nut.  

Here's a little bit of back story about the company, and how they got started : Following the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, Hawaiian music became very fashionable in the United States, leading to two predominant Hawaiian-music correspondence schools in the '20s and '30s: Oahu and Bronson. Oahu was headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, while Bronson's office was in Detroit, Michigan. (It is unlikely that either city was a hotbed of Hawaiian culture at the time.) Each of these outfits sold lessons by mail (often attempting to enlist advanced students as teachers and representatives) and featured its own line of guitars. Of these, guitars labeled Oahu are fairly common today, but Bronson guitars are quite rare!
