This is a 1930's Vintage Supertone Hawaiian Parlor Guitar sold by Sears and Roebuck. The blue and white label can be seen through the sound hole: ''We guarantee this Supertone to be free of defects....'' It has a slotted headstock with a new set of Stewart-McDonald reproduction tuners, new Martin strings, and an ivory-colored nut. There is an Hawaiian scene on each side depicting a man playing a guitar and a scene on the front depicting a woman at sunset/moonrise on an Hawaiian beach. The top, back, and soundhole are all bound with black/white ''checkboard'' cellulose/plastic binding that is in good shape. On one edge of the lower bout the binding sticks out a little bit beyond the edge of the side for about three inches. There are three Pearl dot inlays on the fretboard. The guitar is all solid woods, probably a Birch body and Maple neck. The neck is straight and beefy and has a v-shape contour on the back side. The neck is solidly attached to the body. 24-1/4'' scale. The body has a back crack and two front cracks that have been glued and cleated and are tightly joined. The fretboard is old poplar that has been stained dark and the final four frets of the fretboard near the sound hole have been replaced. The frets are modern replacements. The action is about 3/32'' between the 12th fret and the strings. The bridge and metal saddle are original and the bridge is black-dyed Rosewood.
