Picked it up in the 80's for $35. Just been around the house all the kids plunking on it. Put some new strings on it and sounds a lot better than the cheap models you get at target. Took the target one back and playing this one, or at least trying to. Want to learn. Wondered about it so looked it up and found this page.

I recently picked up a Stella,6506H941. I believe that's the model and serial number. It has the natural finish with a black pick guard, as pictured. I am happy I found this site because it answered my questions as to what it is and when it was made. It needs some fine tuning to make it easier to play. The action is high and the strings too heavy. Both easily fixable. Made in USA. That makes it a keeper. Never stop looking or playing. there is always something good that will come of it...

A customer gave me my H941, I build acoustic guitars and do repair and restoration. The customer found it for 5 bucks in antique shop in really bad shape. I worked on it in between building my guitars (when i felt like working on something else) It took about 6 months but I brought it back to fine playing condition. I glued many cracks and steamed the neck off and reset it, I did a set up and wow! it really has a great sound and it plays like butter. There was an auction lot sticker on the upper bout and a magic marker ( as is $10.00) I left them on the guitar. I will enjoy this guitar for some time to come(:

I just picked up a H941 at goodwill for $6.09 The guitar has a blonde front and is in very good shape probably a 7 on 1-10 scale I think it lived in someone's closet for the last 50 years.
It plays very well and the action is very finger friendly I've been playing for 45 years on many guitars and this plays equally and as well as a lot of higher end instruments I have played
