He has a bullet bar, so he must have made some progress by that time.

Looks like a Manaloff bakelite, I love those bars.

Nice photo Andy. I didn't know they made Bullet Bars out of Bakelite. I'm always paranoid my Ric Panda is going to drop and break because it's made of Bakelite. Another reason why I love Magnatone Lap Steels so much, built like tanks.

The other detail that points to a serious student is that, unless they came like that, he has flipped the tuners.

Anyone, who likes the old Hawaiian guitar pictures should look for the The Gibson loose leaf Hawaiian Guitar Method it's full of great pictures.
