Diverdave Posted October 26, 2005 Share Posted October 26, 2005 Having recently purchased a 1905 Lachenal English for restoration. I was fascinated to see the number of previous 'repairs' that have been made. It would seem "Just get it working" was the philosophy. The fretwork on the ends is so rough; that I suspect a jigsaw was used to make them. Looking at the 1905 price list I suspect it was originally a rosewood version of the basic model. I have looked at other similar models, with a view to getting a feel for how it should look, but many have the same modifications. My question is, as the records for that year are no more, do I restore to the original (what ever that may be) or upgrade to the best quality I can?
