Does anyone know how many of these Hayman model 5050's were made?

    Amazingly after much research, I discovered that the serial numbers indicate that the one on the right was made one day before the one on the left and s. Numbers are sequential.

    I have never seen Haymans with F holes, very cool!

    Yes, I learned to play on the bass on the right about 45 years ago when a Vietnam vet that special ordered it taught me on it and where my hands were somewhat small it was the perfect fit for me as it is a short scale, very thin neck, with zero fret, and the tone and resonation were really mellow sounding, but would still have a good punch on it. I really knew very little about them till I purchased it back and my guitar player had researched it and informed me that is was very rare. I am thinking, after much research, that only 53 were made.
