One last attempt to find one soul who can identify this guitar

bopsterbopster St. Louis, MOProdigy Altamira M30, Wide Sky PL-1, 1940? French mystery guitar

I have written, emailed, called and badgered a number of luthiers, instrument collectors and recommended authorities on jazz manouche lutherie and still cannot verify the maker or era of this guitar. Here’s what I do know:

  1. Solid rosewood back and sides
  2. possibly cedar top
  3. Mirecourt luthier of unknown ancestry.
  4. The previous owner was unaware of this guitar’s origins.

The following are the post restoration photos, with non original items:

  1. tailpiece
  2. Tuners
  3. new fretjob.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
