As today is #ThrowbackThursday we thought we’d share an original Stimer from the early 1940s that the team spotted being restored whilst in Cognac with Maurice Dupont.  A good deal of work had already been done and, as you can tell from the pictures, it was in pretty poor shape to begin with.

30 - old stimerThe guitar is made from Birds Eye Maple, a wood still used by Dupont should you want a new version of it, and should be finished in the next few days.  If the restoration is completed whilst the team are still there we hope to bring you the before and after shots.
