H956 - Montclair - 1955-1968 - Acoustic archtop - Black
The black and white acoustic arhtop. Be careful when identifying Montclair models : some important differences, under same name and same model number ! No model had a cutaway, but all models had the "cutaway type" thick white molded pickguard. Evolution : - until 1955 : Two body sizes, 19 frets. H956 "auditorium" (15 3/4) or H956S "Grand Auditorium" (16 5/8). Both have "harmometal" (aluminium) bindings, No trussrod. - 1956 : only H956S "Grand Auditorium" (16 5/8) size was proposed. - 1958 : H956W, "Grand Auditorium" (16 5/8) size with new trussrod neck an 20 frets (one more perloid dot on 15th fret). Still have "Harmometal". - 1959 : H956W, same model but no more harmometal (16 1/2 body), replaced by thick W/B/W plastic bindings. - 1965 to 1968 : later H956 (without suffix, like the older, smaller models), now with block inlays on neck, still has 20 frets.
