1 lx 2 weeks ago NFI.Seller has it listed as a '53 but it's closer to no later than '50 as that's about when the smaller f-holes were phased out. He also thinks it's a 17" but these were 16". Check out the cool MOTS green headstock which contrasts beautifully with the yellowing scripty logotype. Usually these were black pyralin which tends to shrink with time. The rest of the Synchro seems pretty clean.
