Ive just picked up a Rene Gerome to restore to playing condition. Does anyone know what the model and date of it would be? I know these guitars are 40's/50's. Have seen two headstock types and two different inlay designs on the purflings and sound hole on the internet. Some have celluloid pick guards some wood. Many are called "artisan" or rm 738 as model types on the web ( to me it looks more like misreading the label? I have also seen model jazz on this site. Any clarification much appreciated. Anyone restored one? Any surprises, i can see a dowel in the neck heel with original finish over! Screw or dowel? Odd.
It was living in an attic in Arle. Hence very crispy!
