    Well known picture, great quality. It´s nice to see the Lloyd Loar without broken scoll, gouged peghead and with a strap tied to the headstock.

    The propeller inlays give this away as the F-7. Where may that one be now? And where may that Gibson ´36 Jumbo be? Great guitars.

    So the headstock scroll was broken sometime between Stringbean and Scruggs.?.

    I wouldn´t know. Here´s what we know:

    Stringbean saw the F-5 with the scroll intact.

    Earl saw the F-5 with the scroll broken off.

    It could be that...
    - the scroll broke off when String was in the band,
    - it broke off when Earl was in the band,
    - it broke off inbetween.

    I think I read somewhere that Mr. Monroe kept the broken part until it got missing in action.

    What I do know (trusting Sonny Osborne´s tale) is that Big Mon scratched the finish and gouged the inlay out when Sonny Osborne was a Bluegrass Boy (being around 16 years of age back then and having recorded Pike County Breakdown).

    Nice seeing those old pictures...documentation of an era in bluegrass history. Could be put into book format with some notes and commentary.

    You know, I somehow got away from this thread for a while, those last three shots are so great! From both the historical and photographic standpoint. The last one, just shows how much styles have changed, I actually think there is no more “interesting style” of dress that Mr. Monroe ever “Owned” more. If the boots weren’t so blasted expensive, I’d outfit my band that way!!
    I suppose I’d need an F-7 to better carry it off though wouldn’t I?

    That’s a FABULOUS shot Darryl! Where? When? There is a whole generation out there that probably has no idea who some of those guys are!
