Jacobus Jany, Vienna, 1800. The six string classical guitar appeared in the mid 1780s in Naples, Paris, and Vienna. This guitar made in 1800 by Jacobus Jany, a luthier in Vienna, has come down to us in nearly perfect condition. As may be seen it closely resembles guitars made by Giovanni Battist Fabricatore (active c. 1780-1811) in Naples at about the same time. Its ebony fingerboard is set flush with the top. It has maple back and sides, German spruce top, figure eight headstock with pegs. It has tie gut and ivory frets, however, its original tie bridge was replaced by a pin bridge early in the 19th century. The scale is 625 mm. This instrument has surprisingly good volume for a small bodied instrument, very lovely tone, with focused trebles, well rounded mid-range, and nice basses although not as full or deep as in a modern guitar, but all together the combination works wonderfully well, especially when playing period music such as Sor or Giuliani.
