    The switch and the pots are wrong. Looks like a newer non-phenolic CRL 1452. The pots should be blue stamp Stackpole, and those look like CRLs. As mentioned before, the knobs are newer. The serial on the bridge is fishy too.

    I think the real "TG" used slashes rather than dashes. Check page 73 of the blue hymnal.
    Does anyone know TG's name?

    Maybe a past owner lived in a lighthouse, by the sea (high salt) :idea:

    Yup, you do that!:cool:

    There's only ONE fault with that book, and that is that there's not a similar book about the Leo era "Whiteguards" to accompany it.;)

    Reminds me of the blackguard relics that violin builder Nigel Crinson was doing circa 2004 here in the Uk.
