Could it be a Short Keyhead that Emmons made?

That would be my guess.
It looks like the split keyhead they used on that model.

This keyhead is not split.
The changer looks like Zum
I was told that the parts came off aD10 Zum that was robbed of the C neck. But I do not know about the keyhead. It doesn't look Zum.
Thanks for replies.

Dosen't really look like a SKH. They were split on the front and the piece the rollers sit in were a separate piece from the keyhead itself. It attaches to the keyhead. Unless the very first ones were different? This is a SKH guitar changer.

Could the keyhead be a Derby....The foot pedals look like Derby.

Derby is slimmer on the sides. This one is thick.
