Damir is that badge in the wrong place? It looks different than others I have seen or are my eyes need glasses? Great looking. Bob M

you are very welcome my friend, very first Promat guitars didn’t have either name or logo, after that they had a smaller Promat logo placed at the bottom of the front apron by the changer like this one, and later guitars had bigger Promat logo centered below the changer...

I am not sure of the status of the shop right now, but I wouldn't count on that, however buddy of mine Henry Matthews just serviced this guitar, and used some of the original Emmons push pull parts in few places, they need to be slightly modified for perfect fit, but they are usable...

This guitar is difinitley a tone monster. I compare guitars to my bolt on Emmons and I think this one sounds better. I had to replace a couple rods that were too short and used regular Emmons push pull rods. The were just a little to tight to work smooth thru the barrels on the bell cranks so they had to be drill out about .02 to work smooth thru the guides and on bell cranks. This guitar is metric but Emmons push pull parts will work and may need slight alterations which is very easy to do.
