Hi,
Do you play 11-string guitar? Why don’t play on an original – from the developer of the Alto guitar; Georg Bolin!!!

Regrettably I do not play (but I had ambitious dreams to learn :) ) so therefore this magnificent instrument is out for sale.

I bought this guitar couple of year ago, from a friend whose family socialized with Bolin and had this guitar as "payment" for services. No one in this family play so therefore the guitar is still in an excellent condition /“as new”.

Please find some more info about Alto in below link:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleven-string_alto_guitar

I will post some pic asap/ When I learned how to do :)

Absolutely, a plesant provenance.
Except this alto-guitar I also bought two other 6-string Georg Bolin guitars from same guy and with the same history; family got it as payment for services...not been played at all ...from early 1980’s – I'm very pleased :)
