Stunning Vintage Streamliner

Yep, that looks like spruce - most likely the outer veneer of a laminate top though. Pretty figued maple on the back too!

Cool! More like a late '53 model year example with ore-Streamliner features (knobs, tailpiece, missing inlay on 1st fret). Looks to have the short-lived black bakelite(?) Melita unit too, unique to that timeframe.

My '58 6190 has a spruce top too. Love it!

Pre-Streamliner (sorry for the typo)

Ah.. thanks thought it may been an acronym... would love to hear how it sounds. Deeper body too (from what i've seen online)
