    I recently acquired it, since I was interested in restoring it. I can't find any information on it, and I'm having trouble finding websites with bridges and tuners for it (it's a shortscale, I assume 30", as I'm positive it's less than 32").

    Any places I could get parts for it? Know any information about it?

    my advice is sell it to me for $50.
  3. Just a question, but is there anything wrong with the bridge and tuners? I personally think if you got a more modern bridge and tuners, it might take away that vintage vibe...just a thought :)

    The tuners are falling apart, although that's due to the screws being deteriorated.

    The bridge's saddles makes it really hard to adjust the action. The strings were INCREDIBLY high because of it. If the vibe bothers me that much, I'll just get another 2-saddle, but I doubt it.
