Old Framus?

I would really appreciate any advice...

I was given an old arch top f-holed acoustic, the stradle and machine heads were missing and the nut is split.

The guitar has a 'Framus' transfer under the lower f-hole and the headstock seems to be the right shape for Framus.

My problem is I've been chopping and changing the guitar to suit my style (4-string), so far I've only altered the missing bits but the nut is next and I just want to know I'm not messing up something rare/old/etc.

This is the guitar in its current state:

On the back of the headstock appears to be stamped: 14027. I've been to the Framus site but it all seems to concern the new electric (Washburn) guitars and amps, VintAxe doesn't seem to cover them...any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tim.

Uber-bump, but I don't care cos it's my thread :P

Just spent an hour screwdriver time and this is now back to being a 6-string! Sounds lovely too, much more power than I expected. Just need too learn to play now...
