    This guitar belonged to my Dad. I feel like he had it all of his life, but I think he acquired it sometime in the 60s. I have no idea where he got it. All I know is that he had the "wander lust" and would take off for long periods of time (sometimes with my Mom and the 6 of us children and sometimes not ;) ). Anyway, he might not take a change of clothes, but this always traveled with him. The label was very hard to get a picture of, and it appears there are faded numbers on the "Model" line (one looks like a "6"). Any other information would be appreciated.

      Brunswick is our token musician on CW. You'll hear from him soon. Just my bit of sick humour. Been on this little island too long !

      What a beautiful guitar! You may already know this but the serial number dates the guitar to 1954! It could be older because the serial numbers aren't always 100% accurate. If I had it I would not sell it. Besides being a treasure from your dad it is a very coo l guitar!!!!
