From Kevin Kopp:
"Ren Ferguson brought this brass body back from OAI (Original Acoustic Instruments) after he went down to help direct the closure and moving of the California shop. This was in the mid 1990's to my recollection, that was when I bought it.
I sent it back down to the shop to have a weld retouched, and they asked me where I got it? I explained the story and nobody recalled ever having seen it before?
The design sand blasted (?) onto the back was normally seen on wood bodied models 60 / 65 / 66 and 66B. The design was changed in 1934 to show a (D) instead of the ominous skull looking figure in the center.
I crafted the neck and finished it out. It has a fresh refret and set up on it. What exactly is it? I don't know, but it's the only one you will ever see come out of my shop, and that's pretty cool."
