Product Description

Raffaele Tieri was one of a number of Italian immigrant luthiers centered around the east coast, mostly in the NY area, in the 1920s and 1930s. Tieri's neighbor on Spring St in NY was D'Angelico. His range of instruments was quite wide, including mandolins, mandolas, mando-bass, round-back mandolins, banjos, harp-guitars, flattops, arch-top guitars, balalaikas and more. This example is a favorite design of his: flat top and back, 17 inches wide but only 3 inche deep, maple back and sides and spruce top. It differs from any others we've seen in its unique and distinctive art-deco style rosette and pickguard. It has a deep, punchy and loud tone.
