Guitar by August Otto Reichel, Markneukirchen

Beitrag von ventadorn »

Hi I wonder if anyone has information about this guitar maker? I rebuilt this little guitar as all the braces were loose and inside found the maker's stamp on the underside of the soundboard. I am guessing it is 1930's judging by the enclosed style tuners. It sounds wonderful, was unused for many years I think and was a "dachbodenfund". I have been looking at old address books for Markneukirchen and see there were many Reichels at Breite Strasse 4 in 1929 and 1937, including an August Reichel so maybe he was at this address. Does the Reichel family still exist in Markneukirchen?
