    It is bound with abalone. Hamer is the closest I have seen , but just guitar. Anyone have a clue?

    It is purdy. Is it yours? Is the lower horn damage? It’s hard to tell. Did you try to fit a neck? I have no clue but i do feel a kinda Washburn vibe. Bridge could be just about any or several but first guess is a Schaller might be a good fit

    It would be easier to tell if it wasn’t distorted

    20181211_093646_Burst01. Your right no pu mount holes. The neck plate has a recessed cavity as well and there is brass threaded inserts for the cavity plate.

    I know ! Thats whats got me wondering . And the quilt top has no finish on it at all. The binding is broken and missing pieces
    So thinking of just rounding it over. From what I can see it looks like a one piece slab of mahogany. It was CNC roughed.
