A second Songster Hawaiian. It's also a round neck, as they all apparently were. See Page 5
of the "Original 1930's Slingerland Catalog" for a view of it in the catalog. Note that the
description is not accurate in that it says that the guitar has "new hinged extended tailpiece".
This guitar has an "elevated finger-rest", and also has fancier inlay on the bridge -- not a plain
dot like the first one or the picture in the catalog.
Side view of the Songster, showing the arch. Note that this arch is not pictured in the catalog.
This guitar has plastic button Grover tuners.
Closeup of the end, showing the unusual placement of the endpin. Also notice that there is a
factory patch to the veneer on the bottom right of the center strip.
