Now here is an interesting guitar. I believe this was made during the war from various scrap wood. The RCAF tunic button embedded in the headstock dates from wartime, as do the various markings on the pieces of crating used to make the body. Such as one stamp saying the contents have been treated against boytritis. Another says federal inpected by by inspector 007.
As you can see, the nut is a nail, with grooves filed in it. The frets are wooden.
The neck runs right through the guitar & encompasses the tailpiece as well. It can be seen running through the middle of the soundhole. There are 4 different tuner posts in the machine heads. All in all, a very unique item, & definitely the only one in the world!
