could anybody have a look at these fotos and help me find out what model this is. It got a different neck (a Hopf 'Everstraight', I believe), so there is no name nowhere to find.

I traded it in the 80ghties with a LesPaulStandart because I wanted to move from Rock to Jazz and this guitar sounds wonderful with a Polytone Mini Brute. It came with a DeArmond Rythm Chief 1100, floating on top (I just had a good smile when I found out for what prices these things are going these days ...)

Don't know the guitar, but it looks like it will get the job done. A bebop special. Play on.

Nice looking guitar, the f-holes are definitely unique and could be key in identification. Any clues, like who made the tuners (machine heads)? If I had to guess I'd say maybe a Framus guitar from their very early years. It could be a homemade job from one of the Benedetto's or one of the other greats. Just day dreaming o/c, but you never know. If you can get around to it post a few more pics, maybe of the tuners or some other area that can be eliminated or identified. How about a pic of the headstock? Has it been scatched, covered up or stickered to death? How's she play anyways?

Second thought, I think it's an very early Epiphone. Check it out.
