I bought one of these [the 6 string version] from Snakey Jake in Crewe about '92 for a family member to learn on. The guitars are bolt on neck, plywood/'laminate' construction with a Gibson type 'batwing' scratchplate and a zero fret. The necks are chunky but the action is good and easy to adjust. They are heavy because they are very robust - they were a favoured busking/outdoor guitar in the 60's and early 70's. The shiny gold label inside doesn't give a date but serial nos. should be on the headstock.
When I go to visit I play it and it still sounds good.
