early50's 14 fret oval hole

I am going out on a limb on this one.. and there is little to back me up other than physical evidence.. this guitar, in my opinion is likely to be one of the last "Grand Modèle" style the Busato shop ever built.. and the likely influence to Jacques Favino's classic model.. the ressemblance between the two guitars is undeniable.. same shape.. same dimensions.. Jacques Favino worked for Bortolo Busato... you draw your own conclusions.. it has a solid spruce top, laminated maple back and sides..classic Busato neck and headstock shape, with a rosewood fingerboard..when I got this guitar it had no tuners,no tailpiece, no strings.. now it has a set of DR tuners/tailpiece and some strings..!! the result is outstanding.. this is the loudest Busato I've ever had..a lot of gypsy life..and much much more to give..
