This vintage guitar originally belonged to my grandmother. My grandfather got it for her in or around 1956-1957. It was her first guitar, and it's surprisingly lasted almost 60 years perfectly intact. I inherited it because I was the only one in my family that knew how to play, so I got it. I love it, but I'm always afraid to take it out of its case. I don't want it to break.
Got mine off of ebay, it was all there except for the bridge, the wood was good but all the glue was rotten, I took it apart, sanded it good, and glued it all back together, later added a modern tailpiece, tuners and wired up a single P-90 Dog Ear Pickup with volume and tone. All grounded of course.
