Valco-made for sure. The general design and especially the pickup are a dead giveaway. Most of the ones that I've seen that looked like that were branded Airline, which was a Montgomery Ward brand name for guitars and amps. But I believe Doug's also has no brand name.

Great sounding guitars. I have a little MOTS (Mother-Of-Toilet-Seat) Supro that is basically the same guitar with different cosmetics and brand name.

It's an Airline from about 1954. In the '60s, there was a similar model with two knobs (no 7222); I'm not sure if this earlier version had the same number.

Now you got the same one as Doug, that was the easy part, now you have to make it sound like Doug's. Wink
