Script logo on headstock
Label marked "6128-S"
No marker at first fret

Spotted on Ebay April 2009

Script logo and no first fret marker suggests this is possibly late ‘53 production, ‘54 model year. Anybody have anything to add?

nothing really to “add” just got to uncross my eyes&re-hinge my jaw,talk about holy grails, i’d say late 53…. WOW!!…..

Open back Waverly machines, smooth knobs, Melita…all the good stuff…
