I have an H1035, however it is a V-neck "standard Stella"-sized acoustic. It has its original dyed Maple pin bridge, with a brass fretwire saddle exactly like the frets in the dyed Maple fretboard. The sunburst finish is identical to that in your photos of the slide guitar, and the guitar has the slotted headstock, with pre-war Kluson tuners. Serial number is 820. The body appears to be slab-sawn Maple with "birds-eyes", rather than the birch usually used in this type of guitar... Pine

Recently I found another slot-head H1035, which obviously was built with the square neck, due to its "flat" heel. The neck has been rounded-off by a subsequent owner, making this a "regular" guitar. The entire guitar has been stripped and refinished in some type of brushed-on clear varnish, and the original dyed maple pin-bridge is still intact, if filed down. The original fret-wire saddle is gone. The Harmony numbers are still on the back by the neck-block, but there is no build date. Another up-coming "player"! Pine

I own a 1939 model. It was my father's.

I have a Spanish style H1035 with serial #1475. It has the pre-war slotted headstock, with a rounded neck and sunburst finish.

I have had one for sometime now, glad to know what it is!
One exception, mine has a tail piece that holds the strings, must have been a modification along the way. Or did some come that way?
