NEUBAUER - No Name Thinline (Natural)


Got a brand-new cool vintage archtop made by Helmut Neubauer. This one - also has no name - is a Thinline archtop guitar. The Body depth is 55mm. The Sides colored with black-red-black stripes. Top and Back is Natural coloring (guess it's original). The Tuning machines and metal tailpiece are original but the bridge was missing, so I installed a old one of East-Germany made.

Looking totally, you could find the strange shape of soundholes on the topboard. Sickle shaped, but not similar with the one that Hofner or Framus archtop has. Someone had painted inside the body from the soundhole with black, so you could not see the inside of the body from the picture but the wood materials are all solid. Top is Spruce, Sides and back are Maple. Rosewood fingerboard with the white perloid inlays with exception of the red inlay on 12F.

The guitar has totally BIG sounds, really amazing, even though the thin body. Of course, the low-end sound is not so rich but loud enough. The black painted neck reminds me an old (19th century) classical guitars coloring. Body Width (at the Lower bout) is 440mm, Neck Scale is 650mm. The Neubauer logo on the perloid headstock.




NEUBAUER - No Name Thinline double-cutaway Archtop (Red Sunburst)


As like the other AMBITIOUS guitar Luthier in Germany (Artur Lang, Wenzel Rossmeisl etc..), Helmut Neubauer also made the DOUBLE CUTAWAY archtop. (Lang's DC archtop could be looked as a copy of Gibson 335, but it has same characters of his normal Archtop works like the multi-bunding and metal-plate headstock. Roger's full-bodied DC model could find at ROGER catalogue. ) I guess Neubauer tried to make DC thinline from the influence of LANG. So this guitar has the DEVIDED soundholes on Top just like as the LANG's guitar has. But you'll find this guitar has FRENCH Cutaways.

This double-Cutaway Thinline Archtop was made with : laminate Maple top, sides and back. Neck shape was really FAT. But this guitar has Big sounds enough for using acoustically. There're no traces to put any pick ups before. (But I want to put'em onto it....) Body width (at the lowbout) 420mm, (at upper bout) 290mm. Depth is 60mm. Scale is 640mm.




NEUBAUER - No Name model (Red-Sunburst)


The Luthier - Helmut Neubauer (His grand-father, Franz Hirsch was also the luthier, worked with Wenzel Rossmeisl for the early ROGER guitar (see ROGER page) in the Nuremburg era). This one (has no name) is by Helmut Neubauer in late 50s or early 60s (not sure). A red-black sunburst finish (in german, they calld this color "black-rose" ). Solid spruce top, Solid maple sides and flamed solid maple back (bookmatched). Maple-mahogany-maple-laminated neck (very fat and strong, still keeps absolutely straight) having a zero-fret. Rosewood fingerboard. The headstock has decolated with Tortoiseshell and printed the Nerbauer logo. Scale length-650mm, nut width-43mm, body width-431mm, body depth-82mm. Sounds amazing, bright and loud. typically perfect-all-solid-sound with top quality. The original pegs are replaced with newer klusons. I guess the tailpiece was replaced somewhen. a lot of lacquer checkings.
