Nice post! Now... what guitar is this???? Whitley?

The rosewood bodied Radio Grande would be my guess, judging by the fret markers, 12 fret neck,  and, seen well at t=1:36, some copious body depth on the upper bout.

Yes, Dave that's what Gibson would normally call a Radio G, but to Roger's thinking it looked like mahogany, recall this factory fretted (not Hawaiian) mahogany Smeck Radio Grande that showed up at Guernsey's auction (it's no. 410, and just try not to get distracted by the other amazing listings:

Sorry about the derail, Murph. . . try as we might try not to be, some of us are into guitars.

And Happy Birthday, 'Murka
