Harp Guitar by Henry G. Tabbert



An interesting harp guitar, built by Henry G. Tabbert.  A paper label inside reads:


Made By

Henry G. Tabbert

Maker of

Mandolins and Guitars

Dec. 31, 1900

Cleveland, Ohio




The instrument has a Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides, and a Mahogany neck.  The harp neck carries 12 strings. 

No in-depth research has yet been conducted on Tabbert.  He is listed in the Cleveland city directories, but never with an occupation related to music or instrument construction.
