I bought this back in 1981 or so from a fella who used to do all the vintage instrument repairs at ZAPF's Music in
Philadelphia.  Wish I could remember his name, but I can't.   I've had this now for just over twenty years and except for
the time the brace inside the face popped off (and the whole bridge began sinking on me in the middle of a
rehearsal) it hasn't given me one day's worry.   I'm always on the lookout for a new pickguard for it as well as well as
an original non-adjustable bridge, but the Loar adjustable ebony that's on it now is just fine for playing purposes.
