I have recently bought an old tenor... it looks to me to be a Stromberg-Vossinette by the looks of the headstock and neck adjuster. It is an openback, eleven brackets, ninteen frets I believe, and the original short neck tenor design. The tailpiece is not original, in fact it is for a five string. Any aditional info? Is is a vossinette, when was it most likely made, quality, and most importantly, value repaired?
Here she is. A bit rough for sure.
Thanks for everything, pickers!

I think you are right,it's a 30's S/V,probably just before they became Kay.The neck adjustor is a giveaway on that.I think the ball ends are supposed to go under the fingers on the tailpiece,so it works for a Tenor that way,but it sure had been replaced.
With the rust and all,it not going to be worth more than $100 all cleaned up,IMO.
