A favorite model of ours, the hybrid nature of roundhole and carved top works great for jazz, fingerstyle and a lot more. They were made for only about five years, 1929-34, and like so many great ideas, succumbed to the single-minded market at the time. We've done a neck reset, refret, new higher-grade bridge and solidly re-repaired a couple minor top cracks. The tailpiece and tuners are original. The neck is beautifuly shaped, nicer than L-5s of the time, for some reason.
