  • Guitar ID please - Tommy Allsup (Buddy Holly guitarist)

    Anyone recognize what these 2 hollowbodies are? Thanks in advance.




    I can almost make out the name on this blown up version, but I don't recognize the logo.

    I don't recognize either, but I love that single cut. Couldn't find anything matching that headstock through Google. I'd really like to know as well. He had a signature hollowbosy Samick, but it looks different than what he's playing there.

      I could probably find out in the next week or two, if I stop by the Norman & Vi Petty museum here. The problem is that I never go through town and I'm not going out of my way with these fuel prices. I might be able to find out if I called David or Ken, I havent heard from Richard Petty in a while and it's been a few years with a lot of bad **** for an old man to deal with so he might not even be with us any more.

        They're closed right now, I'll call them tomorrow if I remember.

          I thought it was a Samick or National but it doesnt look like either.

            I called them and it's not there and nobody there is old enough to remember it.

                  Cool, thanks for figuring that out. Seems like it's pretty rare, very few hits on Google.
