    Benjamin, this is so cool. The group of people here and the widespread generosity in knowledge sharing is so refreshing.
    Nice work on the registry!

    The guitar is now presented in the folk music museum of Montluçon (France) MuPop.

    This is great work. Wondering where the link to the pictures are and is there a description of #3 Electric guitar?

    Thanks

    @1894Orville- here is what I have regarding #3 (I've removed a couple of names for anonymity sake) Spanish/Hawaiian/Acoustic/Electric guitar for a while. It's a 1933, maybe the third (the pickup assembly has a hand written in pencil "3" on it) of the ViviTone guitars. I got it from a CC to whom it was given by the estimable Mr. Loar in 1933. CC put an RCA jack in it, and the inventor of the Gibson humbucking pickup, gave me a couple of early 1930s 1/4" jacks as probably appropriate restoration bits and pieces.
    Raphael Ciani Galiano circa 1920
    Gibson F-5G FB 2003
    John D'Angelico 1933
    Vivitone Acoustic #338 circa 1933
    Gibson F4 1915 Blacktop
    Shutt/ Harmony Viol Mandolin circa 1930
