But can anyone maybe tell me what this could be? It was my Dad's and it's in sad shape. There is no lable on the inside and at one time it was in pieces. It needs a complete fret re-dress and the laquer needs to be stripped cause I'm pretty sure at one time it was a tobacco burst. It still sounds ok though. I'm quite sure it's not worth the money it would cost to have it restored. I'm new to the postig pics thing so I hope this works. Oh yeah all that is inside is a very faded number under the neck it's 5 digits then a dash and 2 digits.
