Original bridge and bridge plate fell off in about 1944 then it sat in storage for 75 years, alas neither were really salvageable so new ones were installed of madagascar RW and hard stiff maple. The original parts are included (Bridge, Plate, Fully functioning tuners). Frets are original, and neck has been reset.

1943 is an odd year for these, so it has some interesting features.

1 3/4 nut
Fat rounded neck - NOT a V shape at all
SCALLOPED BRACING!
2 2/16 string spacing instead of the usual/earlier 2 3/8th spacing.
Bound soundhole and back.
Factory installed strap buttons! Very rare :)
