One of my favorite images of the many different guitars I got to examine from expeditions with vintage-tone. This one was found in Fort Collins, CO. The older couple greeted us with cheese, fruit, bread, and other delicious snacks. And how can I forget the chocolate strawberries. Some as big as your head!
This is a National Duolian 1935 model. The finish is an extremely rare Duco Gold. I love the sound these beauties make. Perhaps one day I’ll be able to afford a real National! 
I took this shot as he was avidly showing us around his guitar room. The child-like gleam in his eyes I’ll never forget.
