Anyone know anything about Lyle guitars?
I've got an old jazz-style Lyle that I know absolutely nothing about. It was given to me by my Grandfather who doesn't remember where he bought it or for how much... let alone the model number. The body looks a lot like a Gibson ES 335... slim neck, F-Hole guitar, raised pick guard, two single coil pickups, 4 tone control nobs (two marked "T" two marked "V" for tone/volume I'm assuming), Bigsby-like tremolo, fender style top.
It's got a decent tone, not a lot of sustain. I have to have it set up everytime I change the strings (the bridge isn't fixed at all... a small sticker underneath says "place bridge here" or something to that effect.
I heard Lyles are becoming more and more rare... it'd be cool to find out this thing was worth something... if not, it still has sentimental value.
Anyone know what this thing is?
