Any idea what era this vintage dearmond would be. No idea what instrument it came off of. Word is it's really hot!

Looks like sixties (rounder corners); measure the height of the casing. Looks like a neck pup. Height for vintage Gretsch is 7/16". I'll post the heights for the Guild style ones tomorrow.

I never measured the Guild v. Gretsch but the neck Guild is also 7/16". The rounder corners give it a slightly smaller appearance. The bridge Guild is 9/16".

5

Yours looks like a 60's model. They were available in all music stores for $25.

7

Besides these being hotter..which probably makes them not as bright (waa) how do these differ sonically from the 50s models, if at all?

I've never heard any difference.
