50+ year old Vintage Archtop in Bloomington IN for $90

I can't tell the make or model on this arctop from the pic but it sounds fairly playable according tho the seller.  That stamped tailpiece is not very familiar - but there were a lot of USA guitar makers back then.

Every guitar player should own one of these at some point - I've had several and have held onto my Regal because it has the best feel and most woodsy tone.  The nice thing about archtops is they help you to focus on the tone and chords instead of soloing all over the place - so they are great for songwriting.

Cool old guitar. Plays really well up to the tenth fret; some of the notes go bad after that. A few cracks in the body. Made earlier than 1959. No brand name. With case.
