From the television age, this is a uniquely post-war instrument was designed by Mario Maccaferri and made by the French American Reeds Manufacturing Company of Mount Vernon, New York. Made from Styron (Dow Chemical), the instrument features a white face, with a red marble look on the back and sides. The bolt on neck features a 24.5" scale length, and has brass frets; at some point the original enclosed gear "banjo" tuners were replaced with more standard plate tuners (original parts included). The guitar actually plays very well, and has a punchy/hollow tone.
