Old Kraftsman/Harlin Bros Archtop?

Posted by Derek on Mon, 05/26/08 - 20:48:21.

I have recently purchased an Old Kraftsman Archtop with a replaced neck. There seems to be no serial number to identify the model.
However on the headstock there is a patent number and under it says "Harlin Bros Indianapolis, IND"
The patent is for a the type of guitar neck that the Harlin Brothers designed. Yet I am unable to find any information on the Harlin Bros other than that they made pedal steel guitars and Hawaiian sheet music.
Does anybody know whats going on with this guitar?
