This guitar seems to be a precursor to the Ibanez, CSL D holes of the later 70s early 80s. At some point it’s had the neck reset – badly. And someone has also mounted a pickup using two struts which were screwed across the opening, you can still see the screw holes which I’ve done my best to fill. It’s a full sounding guitar but would be even better with a refret.
Its 640mm scale length and has quite a chunky neck and a wide fingerboard and it stinks like an old damp wardrobe
