    i have this guitar and it has the wooden tailpiece.
    it's stamped f-45 in the soundhole.
    i haven't gone through it yet but checked the neck and it's perfect.
    looking foward to hearing how it sounds
    love this site.
    thank you

    Looking at your site has finally given me the year my grandmothers guitar was made. I also have this guitar with the wooden tail piece. Thank you for the information.

    I am an amateur luthier and have been helped greatly by your Kitchen Lutherie section. So much so that I took on this model as a project. It was very badly damaged. The top had been rained on for a while and had buckled and unglued. It needed a neck reset and when I did that, the fretboard crumbled. Discouraged, I looked inside and found a S48 stamp next to the paper Bruno label. Since that is my birth-year I plowed forward, stealing a rosewood fretboard off a modern beater, getting a different tailpiece (the original was breaking strings), and a traditional rosewood bridge. I overset the neck, tuned it up, added a pickup and now have one of the best sounding guitars I have heard, plugged and unplugged. Hard to believe it is ladder-braced. Thanks Monsieur Demont

    I have a 1935 Supertone that is virtually identical to this model. It appears in the 1935 Sears catalogue for $4-45 and is described as "Mahogany Finish". From what I can see the stencil marks on the neck are slightly different- obviously it does not say Stella and there is the skeleton trapeze string attachment- otherwise it is identical- very similar to the 1934 Grand Concert minus the painted flourish.The ad states "Easily worth $8-50" and "THE BIGGEST GUITAR VALUE IN YEARS!". You will be pleased that I bought it from someone in France- who advertised it as a Harmony Stella- and it is in pretty good original shape and plays well.
