Help indentifying this guitar!!!

My Dad got this guitar sometime in the 80s. It was used, and had been refinished to look the way it does now. I believe it used to be white. My guess is during the refinishing, the brand and model were sanded off... but there is still a serial # on the back of the headstock. I can't find anything close to it.

I don't have any of the original parts or hardware, except the tuners.

The main reason I need to know is that I am rebuilding the guitar, and need to find a bridge that will work without too many modifications. If I can find the one that actually goes to it, that would be awesome.

Plus I am just curious...

It looks familiar but I can't place it...

Is the body routed in the bridge position? Any chance for a close-up of that area?

looks like a Hondo II

Hmmm... interesting...

Yeah the body is routed... about half an inch or so deep for the bridge... I'll get a close up soon...

In that case I can see your problem. It might be worth having that area filled in with a piece of timber so you can use a more commonly available type of bridge.

yeah I am trying hard to avoid doing that... but it seems to be the only way unless I find the original bridge, or a suitable replacement...

we'll see...
