Re: NGD 1957 D-28 12 String Mod and Questions (reply)
Thanks Dave! We guessed approximate dates based mainly on the availability of the Grovers. They are the later "pat pending" style with the rounded backs, not the flat backs. Do you know when they started the rounded backs? Carl

Well, it's coming to Baltimore so I guess we'll find out exactly what they did to it. Couldn't resist making an offer after the auction closed. Don't know exactly what I'll do with it, but I'll figure that out later. Just had to find out...
