  1. Morning! I started that last night ;). I am going through Reverb and finding likely stores that deal with vintage guitars and am inquiring if they have run across this guitar. Have had several already write back saying they will keep an eye out and some have even suggested a couple of places to ask. Thanks again for your resources, they are providing paths forward! I will check your Seattle link to make sure I haven't yet inquired.
  2. Wintermoon, thanks for your sharp eyes. After you mentioned it I went back to the original pics and did some re-scanning and you seem to be right.

  5. Hey Jim, great info, thanks! I am searching for any other pics of the guitar that might give more clues for the headpiece, will post as soon as I find something. I have some video from which I will try to get some screencaps.
  6. Greetings to all, This is my second post on this forum although hopefully it won't be my last. What I want to share will hopefully help me locate a guitar that had been in my family since around 1947 when it was purchased by my father until the early 1990s. I may not be able to ultimately purchase it but it has become important to me to determine its welfare, if that makes sense, especially after my parents died in the last few years. My parents were part of a family of professional Gospel singers and musicians called The Rushing Family Singers (brothers, sisters and eventually spouses
