: : I contacted C. Bruno & Son's in San Antonio back in the late 80's in regard to my Lady Nelson. I spoke to a gent in the shop I believe. He remembered the guitar which was mfgd. by a Japaneese jobber to be cost effective because of the inlay work. I was told at that time there were 1000 produced between 74 & 76 but fewer than 500 made it back to the U S since the scaled down size fit those people so well they quickly bought them up. I was also told this guitar was a scaled down version of Willie's D-28 with the same neck dimentions, for his second wife Connie. This was debunked by Paul & Billy English {Willie's drummers] this summer in Little Rock, saying, "Connie never played an instrument. But Willie did tell me when he autographed mine in 84, "This is a good damned guitar." I now have 33 signatures on mine.
