Hi... I own one of Vicente Tatay's guitars... I would take this guitar to a luthier and have them restore this guitar... although I have not seen the condition of this guitar you just bought post some pictures of the guitar... maybe someone else can identify the model and year... there are several different lables for these guitars... those of the master builder Vicente Tatay and bear his signature on the label, the Vicente Tatay label in color with a guitar and lute on the label, and his Hijos De Vicente Tatay labels... The guitars with the colored labels are anywhere from student models to mid level guitars... the professional concert models are those that bear Vicente's signature... I have one of these models in my possession. They are a very loud and powerful guitar, beautifully made... he was a master craftsman.
Vicente Tatay was a guitar maker in Valencia. Vicente established his workshop in 1889. It was like most workshops of the era with the father teaching and supervising his sons so that some day they could take over the family business. The family business soon began to grow, and they had to hire extra help to meet the demand. They slowly began to look for ways to increase their production by mechanizing some aspects of building. Thus, slowly but surely their workshop was transformed into a factory. The firm Vicente Tatay founded has grown into a major factory producing some 40,000 instruments a year. Vicente Tatay retired in 1942, and the firm was taken over by his sons José and Vicente Tatay Tomás who formed a company Hijos de Vicente Tatay.
