I have a h1305 cremona. My guitar has block mother of pearl fret board inlays, not the pearloid stuff. My head stock is a green pearloid just like the one in your pictures. It is also the tobaco burst like the one pictured. My guitar is a nice player, and appears to be in better original shape than the one pictured. I have had this piece for over 15 years now. I have had a hard time finding out exactly what year it was. The neck is not steal reinforced, It has no adjustment or access. Thank You for the info and comparison you've provided here.

I have one like that too, Pete. Very dark wood fingerboard with m.o.p. block inlays that get larger as they climb the neck. Mine is stamped inside with 1549 H1305 and a word that appears to be CERVENA...CERVELLA, (or something like that), surrounded by a thin line.

I have a mid to late thirties Marwin Star. I understand they were made by Harmony, but have not found much info on them. The Cremona V seems to be the closest model hardware wise.....
