I always figured that this was at least the original inspiration. Smile

That is an interesting article. What is the copyright date on the material? In Lorene Ruymar's book there are quite a lot of early round nose bullet bar illustrations, but no dates. Gibson seems to have marketed them fairly early on, considering the style.

The Latch Lake (originally "Broz-O-Phonic") bullet bar is purported to be a copy of the bar pioneered by Sol Hoopii in the 1920s.

I wouldn't leave out the possibility of independent convergent evolution...could be that a number of folks "invented" the bullet bar...kinda like how the electric guitar sprang into being from a number of sources all around the same time. Fascinating history though.

I have a quite heavy bakelite bullet bar by Nick Manoloff that came with my 1935 Model 25 Dobro, so assuming is it a 1935-ish piece. It's heavier than solid bakelite, so it has some core to it. It is indeed a bullet bar though.
