With Factory Order No. 11515 (stamped on the neck block) this A model is right on the border between 1921/1922. Were it not for the squiggle-scratches to the back, it would qualify for excellent condition. Original finish and all parts with the exception of the bridge, and tuners, frets, pickguard, and tailpiece with cover are in great condition. Neck is straight, frets have almost no wear, and it's plenty loud with a great chimey tone.
