    The guy I got this from said he bought it used in 1975. It slipped of the strap and broke the pickguard. There is no serial number or model name/number. Wondering if I can get a replacement pickguard for it and what it might be worth.

  3. thats a new one... ive never seen it before... you could try emailing the people over at mandolin bros www.mandoweb.com and sending them that picture, they are pretty slick when it comes to recognizing just about any instrument and they are honest too
     
  4. I have an old Bassist issue with info on this (a reader submitted pics of his in the "My bass is" feature, and guitar guru Paul Day identified it)

    model no. ET280

    produced in Japan from 1971 to 1974.
