Now in the collection of the Dutch Archtop Guitar Museum, this guitar once belonged to New York photographer Jose Gaytan.
According to vintage instrument dealer Lawrence Wexer, luthier Ken Parker re-graduated and X-braced the top in the mid 1980s. At the same time, the neck profile was reduced and the back of the body and neck were refinished.
