1930's Flat Top #no serial

this is an extremely rare, AND extremely early Busato Guitar..sporting the rue d'Orgemont label from 1934... never seen nor heard of another one..when I found it, it was in terrible condition.. it took weeks for Carl Meine of Wisconsin to restore it and bring it back to life..!!! largely inspired by the banjos of the time, Bortolo Busato brought the "Nacro-laque" to this guitar, likely inspired by Gibson and it's use of the "new material" on the fingerboard of the "Century of Progress" model, as well as Italian accordions of the period..interestingly conceived as a hybrid instrument..steel string Flat Top, but with a tailpiece and a "floating" bridge just like the French gypsy guitars of the times.. great playability and truly most uniquely interesting sound..laminated rosewood back and sides..mahogany neck..solid spruce top... she is a one of a kind..!!!
