I am thinking slingerland or washburn but the tone ring looks like a bacon ? it is 10 5/8 " pot Thoughts?

It has a rogers skin head? no stamp on the dowel stick. The neck seems better than a slingerland and the fret board overlapps the head unlike a slingerland? I don't remember where I got it and have had it for several years. I was going to re neck it unless someone wanted it as a tenor.

What is the width of the head?

The shape of the peghead looks like something that the Lange company might have made.

Just a guess. Good luck with it!

The head is 10 5/8 just a shade over 10 1/2

The hardware also looks like Lange.  Does it have a Little Wonder style tone ring?

The the ring looks like a bacon style which extends into the sound chamber resembling a small donut shape . It can be seen in the picture of the inside of the pot

sorry but this is the correct picture of the pot in question

also the edge of the flesh hoop is lower than the top unlike a slingerland ? this one's a tuff call? I believe I took it on trade years ago thinking it was a lyon and healy of some sort.
