models H1315 - Cremona
Acoustic archtop - Sunburst
I did not found this model in the catalogs yet, but it looks like a model produced during wartime, because of its wooden tailpiece. It has a pressed, not carved top.

    This guitar belonged to my father-in-law, who along with his brother, enlisted in the U.S. Army shortly after Pearl Harbor. Both men had musical backgrounds having played in what would now be called bluegrass bands and because of this the army issued the guitar and a mandolin to them to help with morale among the troops by playing for them. You can see the original case in the photos with a hand lettered label with my father-in-law's name rank, serial number, and assignment. The guitar traveled through North Africa and Italy until the Germans surrendered and was on the way to the South Pacific when Japan surrendered causing the boat to turn around and head to the states. The guitar stayed in its case after the war with the rare exceptions of the kids and kin nagging the 2 men to play on occasion. My wife used the guitar in 1966 when she sang "We'll Sing In the Sunshine" during the Miss Charlotte County pageant in Charlotte Court House, Va (she won). In 1975 my father-in-law passed and the guitar stayed with his wife until she passed in 1981; it then came into my wife's possession where it stayed in the case until 2011. The guitar has been cleaned up and repaired by luthier Tim Benware of Creedmoor, NC and now plays beautifully. My wife now sometimes uses it when we perform as the acoustic duo DryBread Road.
