This is the same model that Django Reinhardt used while on tour with Duke Ellington. I just finished up with removing some "graffiti" from the front, replacing some bum components, and overall cleaning. When I received it, it looked like it had been stored in a shed for the last 40 years. It was made around the same time that the first Broadcasters were rolling off the line on the other side of the country, but it looks as if Epiphone and Fender used just about the same blond finish. Anyway, it was a fun little side project, and I'm sure I'll miss it after I send it on down the road.
