A while ago, I posted a description and some pictures of an old "no name" guitar. I received some very helpful responses from folks on this forum. I am pretty new to the world of gypsy jazz and the gear involved. My lutherie experience is almost entirely old American guitars so some of the details of my mystery guitar were misleading, at least, to me.
Well, the happy ending of the story is that the guitar turned out to be a Busato made guitar, pre-1943, from the shop on the Rue D'Orgemont. But, the complicated side is, it's a lot scarier working on the guitar now that it is no longer a mystery.
But, I wanted to thank some of you for you guidance and interest.
